Trooper Rich Magnussen says ''The Passion of the Christ'' actor was taken Thursday to Cascade Medical Center in Leavenworth.

One should not cast a Schwinn before a shrine.
Hope he’s OK. Good actor.
No kidding. He must have been a liberal.
rotfl, that was quick and it gave me my first guffaw in days.
Rules, there are rules. Don’t they apply for the women as well? :-)
Yeah I would think you have a few mental issues if you try to crash a motorcyclist.
I'm just a bicyclist with around 50,000 miles under my belt, but I've been pretty lucky. I've only had a small handful of people look right at me and then try to kill me, whether it's road rage or just plain old ignorance, if you're on two wheels and expect others to watch out for you or see you or tolerate you, you ain't gonna live very long.
My cousin just had a horrific motorcycle accident a few days ago. Compound fractures of every bone in both legs. We’ll find out in a week or so if he gets to keep them. If he does, the docs aren’t optimistic about him ever walking again.
I’m so glad my husband sold his Harley a year ago. The stress was killing me.
I’m very sorry. Prayers for your cousin. And his family!
LOL, I love the guy (good actor) but this stuff is funny.
I am proud to say that in all my years of over imbibing, I have not once hurled a bicycle.
God help him.
Hate to see this happen to an obscure actor. Hope he is ok none the less. At least he gets some press.
My brother sold his 20 years ago to a friend. 3 days later, head on into a truck.
My brother won’t go near a bike again.
So, I never have owned one, although I owned a snowmobile for a few years and had a very lead foot, and was lucky I never got seriously hurt. Rolled it and flew off several times. Man that was fun, but...high risk.
My older brother got in a bad car wreck as a teenager, and spent six weeks in the hospital, and the motorcycle wrecks went in and out of his ward...paraplegics, quadraplegics...
Had a next door neighbor who was a motorcycle fanatic along with his roomie, used to loudly say what wussies people were who were afraid of motorcycles...then his roomie slid under a semi and got turned into hamburger...he sold his machine the next week. Also had a first cousing who witnessed his best friend get killed before his eyes on his motorcycle, and then he sold his and never rode again.
All that said, riding a motorcycle is part of American Freedom and insanely fun....but there are the extra risks. A fender bender in a car is nothing, but a fender bender on a cycle can mean lost limbs, or worse.
I feel perfectly safe on the bicycle I ride for several thousand miles per year, but statistics-wise, bicycling is the most dangerous sport on earth, due to all the kids who get run over annually.
Hell, you got to live your life and not worry about such things. You could get struck by lightning or have a brain aneurism, just as well. When your time is up, it's up.
Thanks I needed that before I go to bed. I love FReepers. Greatest minds on earth.
He did another pretty good movie recently called Outlander.
Actually, Caviezel is not an obscure actor. Thankfully, he’s selective about the film projects he’s involved in. We’ve seen several of his films(all quality productions and performances. Namely The Passion of the Christ and I Am David).
From what I understand, the actor comes from a close family, and is relatively conservative.
