Prosecutors nevertheless have started an investigation, and the vehicle involved is being inspected for technical defects.

A spokesman for producer United Artists said the truck was traveling at less than 10 mph when some of the wooden slats gave way, leaving the extras sprawled in the road.

Neither Cruise nor director Bryan Singer were at the location. The spokesman said the mishap would not have any impact on the production schedule.
