levtAug 7, (THAINDIAN NEWS) American actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt was involved in a rather serious accident earlier this week while shooting for one of his forthcoming movie in New York. The “Inception” star was left with a huge gash on his right arm after the bike that he was riding slammed against the back window of a taxi on Tuesday while he was shooting an action sequence on the sets of the action thriller “Premium Rush.” Owing to the accident, the well-known actor had to receive as many as 31 stitches after he was rushed to a medical facility.

After preliminary treatment was administered to him, the 29-year-old actor took to Twitter to reveal details of the accident which he described as his ‘first real wreck.’ While talking about the crash, the “(500) Days of Summer” star also noted that the accident could have been way to worse if he hadn’t got his elbow up just in the right time as he busted the rear window of the taxi which was completely shattered following the accident. However, Joseph Gordon-Levitt acknowledged that the accident took place as he was driving the bike too fast but the actor maintained his cool throughout after the crash and jokingly warned a fan who was capturing him on camera, to not try this at home.

The upcoming flick “Premium Rush” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt which has been directed by David Koepp tells the story of a bike messenger who grabs the attention of a corrupt police officer. The much anticipated movie is all set to be released some time next year.
