Sexy actress Eliza Dushku was rushed to hospital when she crashed the bike California Governor ARNOLD SCHWARZENNEGER had bought her - at the tender age of 14.

Arnie presented the Buffy The Vampire Slayer with the scooter when shooting wrapped on the pair's 1994 action film True Lies, but failed to realise Dushku was too young to use it.

And the actress' mum made sure Schwarzenegger was informed of the trouble he'd inadvertently caused when her daughter's adventures on the bike ended in disaster.

She says, "He bought me a little motorised Go-Ped thing. I don't think anyone made it clear that maybe they weren't made for 14-year-olds.

"My best friend and I ended up getting hit by a car and my mum called Arnold from the hospital - he sent a huge bunch of flowers."
