Second Bond crash leaves stunt driver in critical condition

Following the first crash on the scene of the new James Bond Movie “Quantum of Solace” this past weekend which left the stunt driver with minor injuries after the Aston Martin he was driving plunged into a lake, a second crash has left another stuntman seriously injured.

Driving an Alfa Romeo car, the stunt driver crashed into a wall during a car-chase sequence involving a truck and Bond’s Aston Martin DBS. He is currently hospitalized in critical condition. A second stunt driver in the same car was also suffered minor injuries.

“Filming with the second unit on ‘Quantum of Solace’ will be suspended while the accident is investigated,” a statement said. The movie has been filming at the location for the past two weeks.

Neither director Marc Forster or Daniel Craig were on the scene when the accidents occurred.

Guess that Northern Italy Lake Garda location isn’t much luck to Bond. Quantum of Solace is expected to hit theaters in November of 2008.
