July 18, 2009 – According to reports by a motorcycle lawyer in California, James Caviezel was injured in a motorcycle crash Thursday afternoon in Leavenworth Washington.

According to the Washington State Police, Trooper Rich Magnussen stated the actor sustained minor injuries during a motorcycle crash, while he was riding his 2006 Harley Davidson. The accident occurred after a man threw a bicycle into the lane the motorcycle was traveling.

The accident occurred approximately 14 miles south of Leavenworth Washington and the Washington trooper stated that Caviezel sustained minor injuries during the accident. Trooper Magnussen stated that Caviezel was transported to the Cascade Medical Center for treatment and the 40 year old actor was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Caviezel was born in Mount Vernon Washington, and is now a resident of Woodland Hills California; there has been no further report on the actor’s condition. He is best known for his role as Jesus in Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ.”

Trooper Magnussen said that mental issues could have been the reason why the 42 year old Wenatchee man threw the bicycle into the path of the Harley Davidson motorcycle. He also stated that the Washington State Police intend to turn their investigation over to the Chelan County Prosecutors Office for possible criminal charges against the man.
