Scarlett's paparazzi terror
13:30 23 August 2005
Scarlett Johansson has been involved in a terrifying car accident while trying to flee the paparazzi.
The stunning actress reportedly swerved to avoid a gang of shutterbugs, who had allegedly been chasing her for 45 minutes, smashing into a car driven by a woman.
Luckily, no-one was hurt in the accident, which happened on Friday afternoon (19.08.05) at the Disneyland parking lot in Anaheim, California.
Scarlett's spokesman, Marcel Pariseau, told America's E Online! website: "The fender-bender was induced by the paparazzi, who chased her for 45 minutes.
"The two parties exchanged insurance information on their own, and no police report was filed to my knowledge."
According to Pariseau, the photographers - who had reportedly been following the actress in their SUV vehicles since she left her Hollywood home - continued to try and snap Scarlett even after the accident.
Photo agency boss Arnold Cousart has admitted while his cameramen were part of the group trailing the star, they had nothing to do with the crash.
He told America's Los Angeles Times newspaper: "Our photographers were about a block behind her when the collision occurred. She was basically by herself. There wasn't any car behind her closer than 40 yards."
