As rain poured down, a team of five security guards tried to rush the star back to his trailer, but the girls "were hysterical," forcing Rob to dash across the busy street, RadarOnline reports.

A cab then slightly grazed Pattinson as the driver slammed on the brakes.

According to Radar, Pattinson, who walked away from the accident uninjured, looked stunned and a bodyguard yelled: "You see what you did, you almost killed him!"
