Before now, I never really recognized the very present danger of action movie shoots.

Dylan O’Brien, the star of the Maze Runner series, was run over by a car on Thursday while filming a scene in the franchise’s next installment, Maze Runner: The Death Cure. According to TMZ, O’Brien, 24, was taken to a hospital in British Columbia with “severe injuries.”

A statement from 20th Century Fox reads:

“Dylan O’Brien was injured yesterday while filming Maze Runner: The Death Cure in Vancouver, Canada. He was immediately transferred to a local hospital for observation and treatment. Production on the film will be shut down while he recovers. Our thoughts go out to Dylan for a full and speedy recovery.”


O’Brien is also the star of the MTV series Teen Wolf.
