James Caviezel hurt in motorcycle crash



Tbd-jimcaviezel072009 The Washington State Patrol says James Caviezel suffered cuts and bruises when a man hurled a bicycle into the path of his Harley-Davidson, the AP reports. Not the guy who played Jesus! In Aramaic, no less!

Trooper Rich Magnussen says the actor was taken Thursday to Cascade Medical Center in Leavenworth.

Magnussen says the 40-year-old Caviezel was wearing a helmet, and that "it could have been a lot worse." The trooper says he doesn't know why the actor was in the area, about 14 miles southeast of the city. Caviezel was born in Mount Vernon, Wash.

Magnussen says mental issues may be involved in why the 42-year-old Wenatchee man tossed the bike, but then, you'd have to be a loon or a sociopath to do that, anyway.
