The accident involved a crew member at Warner Bros.’ Leavesden Studios in the U.K. on Monday.
It was reported on Monday that production for Fast & Furious 9 has been temporarily halted after a stuntman suffered a serious head injury on set. A spokesperson from Universal told The Hollywood Reporter:
“We had an injury on the set of Fast 9 today in Leavesden with one of our stuntmen. We have halted production for the day to focus on this situation.”
The East of England Ambulance Service also released a statement about the issue:
“An ambulance, three ambulance officer vehicles and Essex and Herts Air Ambulance were called to Leavesden Studios shortly before midday today (July 22), following reports of a man injured in a fall.

Hopefully the injured man will make a swift recovery and production will be back on track soon.
