Fast and Furious 9 filming abandoned after Leavesden studio horror

Filming of Fast and the Furious 9 was abandoned after a stuntman was badly hurt.

It is the third serious mishap in two months at the site where the blockbuster is being made.

A spokeswoman for film giant Universal said: “We had an injury on the set of Fast 9 with one of our stuntmen.

“We have halted production for the day to focus on this situation.”

The victim, who has serious head injuries, was airlifted to hospital from the Warner Bros Studios in Leavesden, Herts, just before midday on Monday.

Hertfordshire police said: “Officers are on scene to assist and carry out initial inquiries.”

East of England Ambulance Service said: “An ambulance, three officer vehicles and Essex and Herts Air Ambulance were called to Leavesden.

“One patient with a serious head injury was transported by air ambulance to the Royal London Hospital.”

On July 11, fire crews tackled a blaze for 15 hours at the site.

While in June, a man was stabbed in the neck on the set of an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Witches being filmed there.

At Pinewood Studios, in nearby Buckinghamshire, an explosion on set of the forthcoming Bond 25 movie injured a crew member on June 4.
