Montreal, March 19 (IANS) “Maze Runner” star Dylan O’Brien was hit by a car and suffered multiple injuries on the set of the franchise’s upcoming sequel “The Death Cure”.
O’Brien was reportedly run over by a vehicle in a car scene gone wrong and may have suffered multiple broken bones.
The 24-year-old actor was taken to a local hospital in British Columbia for observation and treatment following the accident, reports variety.com.
