A stunt coordinator was seriously injured on the set of CBS’s “MacGyver” and has been hospitalized, TheWrap has learned.
“We have learned about an injury to stunt coordinator Justin Sundquist that occurred late Monday on the set of MacGyver in Atlanta,” producers CBS TV Studios said in a statement on Wednesday. “The production team is cooperating with the authorities investigating the accident, and our primary concern at this time is Justin’s health and well-being.”
According to an individual familiar with the matter, Sundquist was injured after falling from a moving vehicle. He has been placed in a medically induced coma due to head injuries and remains hospitalized.
Sundquist settled a lawsuit with CBS last year after alleging “serious violations” of safety protocol on the set of “Hawaii Five-0” led to a separate injury.
Sundquist was working as a stunt double for Alex O’Loughlin’s character Steve McGarrett when he was “struck and seriously injured” by a speeding car in 2016. In the lawsuit, he accused the production of “serious violations of minimum industry standard safety protocols.”
Deadline first reported news of the “MacGyver” accident.
