Two separate eyewitnesses tell HollywoodLife.com that the mega-actor was involved in a minor accident on La Cienega Boulevard

HollywoodLife.com has learned that Tom Cruise may have been involved in a motorcycle accident at around 3 p.m. EST on March 7 in Los Angeles. He was heading south near the intersection of La Cienega Blvd. and Sherwood when a car ran through a stop sign in front of him. According to two eyewitnesses who spoke to HollywoodLife.com, Tom leaned to the left and his red Ducati bike slid forward into a brown SUV, denting the SUV’s back tires. Five people helped Tom pick himself up and get the bike on its side. The bike’s gears were damaged on the left side. From there, Tom immediately ran to the sidewalk (two eyewitnesses say he was slightly limping.) Tom sat outside KOI Restaurant on La Cienega Blvd., where he made two phone calls and waited 30 minutes for paramedics to arrive, we were told by two separate witnesses to the accident.

Tom’s reps tell HollywoodLife.com that the accident didn’t happen.

Also, the following was posted about two hours ago on Tom’s official Twitter page: “Tom NOT in motorcycle accident 2day…Tom tells us he hasn’t been on his bike in days due 2 the weather, but when it clears up, look out. ;)”

Though he refused to be taken to a hospital, claiming he was fine, we’re told Tom spoke with police and the man driving the brown SUV that his motorcycle hit. When we approached the man involved in the accident, he would not give his name but said, “Tom asked me not to talk about this, but I’m fine.”
