An Aussie stunt driver has been hospitalized in Thailand after a crash left him severely injured during shooting on The Hangover 2; putting the production temporarily on hold.
Stuntman Scott McLean remains in a coma after a Dec. 17 stunt in which he plowed his car at high speed into another vehicle in Bangkok.
The movie’s distributor, Warner Bros., released a statement confirming the incident. “There was an accident involving a truck and a car on the second unit set of The Hangover Part II near Bangkok,” the studio said.
“A stuntman was injured during the filming of this sequence. The truck and car were both driven by stunt drivers. An ambulance immediately took the injured stuntman to the local hospital, and he has since been transported to a hospital in Bangkok where advanced care is being provided.”
We hope for a full recovery!
