The car is running smoothly until the “Blue Jasmine” actress hit the brakes and found out that it is not functioning. The fear of a possible crash sent the two “screaming at the top of their lungs,” according to a Daily Mail UK report. View Full Image Reuters Cate Blanchett, best actress nominee for her role in “Blue Jasmine,” wears a nude Armani gown with metallic embellishments as she arrives at the 86th Academy Awards in Hollywood, California March 2. Ms Blanchett pumped the pedal as fast as she could but her efforts failed, speeding past the “Carol” crew who went into the side of the road after finishing the shoot. However, the actress’ determination to stop the vehicle emerged, and with all her strength pulled the wheel to the right and finally stopped the car. The vintage Dodge spun on the icy street before slamming into a wooden fence, a source says. The crew clamoured to the actresses’ aid and cameraman dialled 911 for assistance. Cate, on the other hand, confirmed to the crew that they (she and Mara) are okay, but the car is not fine. Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara are said to be relieved when the director informed them that the take of the scene came out perfect and there is no need for a reshoot. “Carol” is a lesbian-romance film set in the 1950s New York starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. Ms Blanchett will play the title role (Carol) in a story of a young woman (Mara) who fell in love with Carol after spotting her in a department store.

Gilbert father mourns the loss of his entire family in car crash
She was standing nearby and was clipped by the blue Toyota Rav 4. Although shaken up she suffered just slight grazing and a bruise to her head and she was taken to the Conquest Hospital but not detained. The 75 year old man from Battle was uninjured, but also described as being in shock, as were two Poundland employees who were near the entrance. The front door wall of Poundland was damaged by the vehicle along with a parking bollard. The accident happened at around 11.30am and all emergency services were called to the scene. Sussex Police have not charged the driver because this was an accident – his car is an automatic and he pushed the wrong pedal. Customer Lora Morgan told the Observer how she was inside the store chatting with a friend when she heard a huge crash and fizzing sound. She said: People started running towards the entrance, where a new looking car had blocked the entrance and was pressed against one of the windows of the shop. It had mounted one of the bollards where, just two minutes beforehand, I had walked past a woman telling her two children – stay right here, dont go walking off – leaving two dogs with them also. One of the dogs had been tied to the bollard. People were shouting, the mother of the children was screaming and pushing people aside as an elderly man got out of the car shaking his head. The two little girls were just inside the store entrance but I didnt see the dogs.

Cate in car crash
Picture: Reuters Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara narrowly escaped unscathed after their car’s brakes failed while they were filming upcoming lesbian-romance drama, Carol in Cincinnati, Ohio. The duo were riding in a classic Dodge on the set of the Fifties flick when the vehicle began a dangerous slide down an icy road. “Cate was driving and everything was fine until she tried to stop the car and the brakes failed,” a production insider told the National Enquirer. “She kept pumping the pedal as fast as she could, but nothing happened. The girls started screaming at the top of their lungs, speeding past the film crew, who’d pulled to the side of the road after they’d finished shooting.” The actresses’ terrifying ordeal only came to an end when Blanchett regained control of the car by spinning it around and slamming it into a fence. “Everyone came running. As the camera guy started dialling 911, he heard Cate yelling, ‘We’re OK! We’re good!
