Tom Cruise was allegedly involved in a high-speed car chase Wednesday afternoon -- with daughter Suri in the car.
According to the New York Daily News, the actor and his 6-year-old daughter were being chased by paparazzi as they sped up the west side of Manhattan. During the supposed chase, which lasted 20 minutes, the actor's black Chevy Suburban, operated by a driver, reached speeds of up to 45 mph in a 25-mph zone on 10 Ave. The SUV was allegedly being trailed by at least 10 cars ,and a number of motorcycles and bicyclists were also said to have been involved in the chase.
The chase allegedly began when Cruise and his daughter left their Tribeca hotel and ended at the heliport where he and Suri were photographed boarding a chopper headed to New Jersey.
This frightening ride comes only two days after Suri and her mother, Katie Holmes, were involved in a fender bender with their limousine and a New York City garbage truck.
No word yet on whether police will get involved in the incident. Check back for more details as the story develops.
UPDATE: 7/19 -- As of 9:45 p.m. Wednesday night, the New York Daily News updated their website and removed many of the details of the reported "car chase" originally reported in the article, without further explanation. The URL for the page in question still reads "tom-cruise-daughter-suri-lead-paparazzi-high-speed-chase-manhattan."
Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated the speed limit on the West Side Highway is 25 mph. That is the speed limit of 10th Avenue, where Cruise's SUV reached speeds of 40 to 45 mph. The article has been changed to reflect the correction.
