Kristin Chenoweth has been rushed to a New York City hospital today after sustaining injuries while filming for her guest role on CBS' The Good Wife, E! News has confirmed.

The GCB star was on the Brooklyn set shooting a scene when she was hit by a piece of lighting equipment.

"This afternoon, while filming a scene for The Good Wife in Brooklyn, a gust of wind blew a lighting silk out of place striking actress Kristin Chenoweth," a CBS rep tells E! News in a statement.

"She received treatment on the scene by the show's medic until a New York Fire Department emergency medical team arrived and transported her to the hospital. All of us at the studio and the show are thinking about Kristin and wishing her a quick recovery."

A fire department spokesman confirms the incident to E! News: "The call came in at 5:07 p.m. from North Sixth and Kent Avenue. A scaffold fell on a female. Minor injuries. She was transported to Bellevue Hospital."

The 43-year-old actress nabbed a guest role in season four of The Good Wife as a political reporter who causes trouble for the Florrick campaign and for Alicia and Peter's marriage.
