Hugh Jackman -- Car Crash Distraction?

10/18/2010 6:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hugh Jackman's celebrity may be partly to blame for a nasty two-car accident in NYC ... this according to one of the drivers involved in the crash.

Hugh Jackman car accident.
It all went down this afternoon ... a TMZ photographer was shooting Hugh when a van and a Jetta collided across the street.

Our guy ended up interviewing one of the drivers involved in the accident -- who explained that he was looking for his next turn when, "I see all these cameras and I see Hugh Jackman. Next thing I know, I went to take the turn ... BAM."

Kinda like insurance rates ... BAM!

TMZ causes another accident. Maybe next time someone will die. That would make a great story.

And how is Jackman even partly to blame...for just being there? The photographers should be put on a leash - a short one.

he can crash into me anytime he likes. but being a Bostonian he can't compete with my defensive driving...lol. photogs need to be careful before someone gets hurt. doesn't matter if they are famous or not. Im glad no one was hurt. but seriously..yeah he can crash into me. preferably without a car....

Paparazzis killed Lady Diana Spencer, how many others people they want to have on their conscience?

I am so glad to see that others had the same first reaction as I did. The photographers were the ones causing the distraction not a man trying to live his life.

Thank goodness that kid was alright. TMZ, you are cause! Some one could have been killed! Leave Hugh alone. You guys are so lucky that he is always pleasant to you! Maybe that s the problem.

And kid, contrary to how it's right, it's not pronounced as Houston in New York, but it's pronounced "house-ton". That's how New Yorkers know someone is from out-of-town.

Go Hugh, who wouldn't stop to look at him. Can't help that everyone wants to look at a cute Aussie.
