American actor Adrien Brody
narrowly escaped death when he nearly crashed into a cow while speeding on a highway in India. The 34-year-old actor - who also had a life-threatening encounter with a low-hanging power line on the Indian shoot for The Darjeeling Limited
- was testing the speed of his motorcycle when the animal stepped onto the road.
He says, "I almost died. I was behind a tuk-tuk, one of those little motorized rickshaws, when the driver suddenly pulled to the side and revealed a cow walking away from me on the road. I jammed on the brakes, skidded and nearly slammed straight into it."
"I was laughing because it seemed so absurd. I was thinking, 'This is going to be the way I'll be remembered: rear-ending a cow - all the years of hard work and this is it.'"
