A cameraman for "NCIS: LA" was hospitalized with serious injuries after he was pinned while shooting an episode.

Production was shut down immediately after the accident Thursday night but was to resume Friday. The cameraman's name was not released.

The accident comes two years after the death of a guard who was struck and killed by an out-of-control van during filming of an episode of "NCIS." Police said the van's 60-year-old driver suffered a medical condition and hit the security guard, who was 52.

The new episode being shot will serve as a backdoor pilot to a potential spinoff of "NCIS: LA," which itself is a spinoff of "NCIS."

The spinoff episode, produced by "NCIS" and "NCIS: LA" producer Shane Brennan, stars John Corbett and Kim Raver.

The accident is the third this year during production on a TV show. Two people were injured last month on the set of "Castle," and three people were killed in a helicopter crash two weeks ago while shooting a reality show.
