Amid a mob of frenzied fans, Rob Pattinson collided with a taxi on the streets of downtown Manhattan Thursday.

The Twilight actor, in New York City filming Remember Me, apparently attempted to run across the street near the famed Strand bookstore to escape a hoard of fans when he was clipped on his hip by a moving cab, whose driver slammed on his breaks upon impact.

Pattinson, 23, did not appear to be injured and walked away from the incident.

Production sources on the Remember Me set say Pattinson regularly attracts mobs of fans when they are filming. "It's been nonstop busy all day with people trying to get a glimpse of him, and the crowd goes nuts when they do see him," an eyewitness told PEOPLE Tuesday.

As a result, the actor has hired his own security in addition to the bodyguards provided by Summit Entertainment, according to the source, who adds that the heartthrob maintains a positive attitude about his fans.

"I think he appreciates it. He's not one to make a big deal about it. He's a chill guy and quiet so far," the source says. "I think he finds it a little weird that people are standing outside all day to get a glimpse of him, but grateful."

Neither Summit Entertainment nor a rep for Pattinson was immediately available for comment.

    Seriously......he's gonna end up hurt or even god forbid, dead!!! All those crazy people out there that follow celebrities around need to just chill, you need to remember that they are just like me or you, just with a better job! look what happened to princess Dianna, we definately don't want another similar situation! I don't care how nice celebs lives are or how nice you think they have it, I never wanna be one,cause they have no personel life everything they do ends up in the news, I mean COME ON get a life and leave them alone!!
