The actress takes break from filming "Terminator Salvation" in Albuquerque, N.M. to fly back to Britain to be with her family who are mourning the death of their four relatives.

Reports on the death of Helena Bonham Carter's relatives have been all over the net. The movie actress, who was in Albuquerque, N.M., filming her latest film "Terminator Salvation" when the accident happened, was quick to fly back to Britain to grieve the lost with her family.

Four of Helena's relatives died in a minibus crash during a safari vacation in South Africa on Wednesday, August 20. The victims include the 14-year-old son of her cousin, Fiona Bonham Carter, named Marcus Egerton-Warburton, his maternal grandmother, Brenda Bonham Carter, his step-grandfather Francis Kirkwood and aunt Kay Boardman. Fiona who was also involved in the accident survived with a broken collarbone and one of her sons, named Piers, also survived with whiplash.

It's been claimed that the group were traveling from Botswana to another safari park in neighboring South Africa when the accident occurred. Apparently, the vehicle they rode in, a VW minibus, lost control and overturned when its tire suddenly burst on a road near the Welgevonden game reserve, a remote area six hours outside Johannesburg. Francis reportedly had tried to get the vehicle under control, but failed. The vehicle then flipped for several times.

No words just yet from Helena and her camp concerning the tragic accident. But, it's been reported that she's taking break from filming "Terminator Salvation" for an undisclosed time to be with her family. Details remain sketchy whether her temporary withdrawal from the film's shooting will affect its release date.

"Terminator Salvation" is the fourth installment of "The Terminator" film franchise. The action-thriller flick features Helena as lead villain Serena. It is initially scheduled for a May 22, 2009 release date.
