Wednesday afternoon a security guard was fatally injured on the set of the CBS television show NCIS television set in Santa Clarita, California.
According to reports, the male security guard age 52 was struck by a passenger van that crashed through the production camp of the NCIS show. The action on the set was killed shortly thereafter.
This can be for many reasons. One reason could be to gather evidence, or because the area is dangerous. We don’t know exactly what happened yet.
The security guard was transported to a local hospital in critical condition and died a short time later. The cause of the accident remains under investigation and law enforcement officials have stated the 60-year-old driver of the van had some type of medical emergency prior to crashing through the NCIS set.
CBS has released a statement saying they are cooperating with local authorities in Santa Clarita to determine the cause of the fatal accident. The NCIS cast, producers and crew have released a statement saying: “With profound sympathy we mourn the tragic passing of our co-worker and friend.” They stated that “NCIS is a family and as a family, we are deeply saddened by the unexpected loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones.”
