Dark Knight Crew Member Killed in Fatal Car Accident


A special-effects technician working for the movie died after a 4x4 vehicle he was riding crashed into a tree at a property near Chertsey, Surrey, England.

A fatal car crash occurred during a dummy film run for "The Dark Knight" in England on Monday afternoon (September 25) and killed a special-effects technician working for the project, Reuters has reported.

The deceased crew member, later revealed to be Comway Wickliffe, 41, died after a camera truck he was riding crashed into a tree at a property near Chertsey, Surrey. It has been learned that the 4x4 vehicle at that time was following a stunt car believed to be the Batmobile on a racetrack.

"There was filming of some sort involving a vehicle stunt and there was an accident," a spokesman to the U.K.'s Health and Safety Executive explained. "It appears one vehicle was undertaking some stunt driving and another 4x4 provided the camera platform. The second vehicle and a camera operator were involved in a collision with a tree."

While informing that an investigation concerning the tragedy has already been launched and that none of the cast was involved in the incident, Warner Bros. as the company producing the flick also expressed its condolences in an official statement:

"Warner Bros Pictures and the entire cast and crew of The Dark Knight are deeply saddened by this tragedy, and their hearts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of the deceased."
