Yesterday morning a pedestrian was killed on the set of CBS’s crime drama “NCIS: Los Angeles” in Santa Clarita. The victim, a 52-year-old security guard, sustained fatal injuries when he was struck by a production van that sped through a parking lot on set and struck a tent he was standing near. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Production of the show has been suspended while state regulators investigate the fatal accident, explains a California personal injury attorney.
In California, occupational injuries claimed 301 lives in 2009, the most recent year for which the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has released accident information. Transportation incidents accounted for 95 of the fatalities, 17 of which were attributed to a vehicle striking an employee. Protective service occupations accounted for 25 of the deaths. That year, 4,092 pedestrians were killed and 59,000 injured in traffic crashes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the pedestrian who was killed on the set of “NCIS: Los Angeles” in Santa Clarita yesterday.
The Los Angeles Times originally reported this pedestrian accident.
