London: Scottish actor Ewan McGregor narrowly escaped injury when he was thrown from his motorcycle in a road accident.

The 42-year-old `Trainspotting` star was out riding on his motorbike when a car collided with the vehicle, sending him sprawling onto the road, reported Contactmusic.

McGregor took to Twitter after the incident to urge motorists to keep a lookout for bikers.

"Check your mirrors for bikers before you change lanes people. It`s annoying when picking yourself off the tarmac to hear `didn`t see you`.

"Very kind. I`m wasn`t (sic) knocked down but bumped into. Just keep your eyes in your mirrors. Bikers are vulnerable. And very cool," McGregor said.

The star didn`t reveal where he was at the time of the accident, but it marks his third crash in recent years.

McGregor broke his leg in a crash in London in 2007 and totalled a bike when he skidded off a road in Scotland in 2000.
