Stunt man killed while following Batmobile


A special effects technician was killed in a crash during a stunt test run for the new movie ‘Batman: The Dark Knight.’ Warner Bros said that the accident happened ‘off-set’ and the truck the technician was riding in hit a tree while it “was following a stunt vehicle, believed to have been the Batmobile.”

Yes it seems like they are unsure it was the Batmobile since a lot of cars look like the Batmobile these days. Warner Bros released a statement saying:

“There was a fatal accident at a special effects facility for Batman: The Dark Knight. A technician on the film died when the truck he was in struck a tree following a test run. 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.”

The accident is under investigation by Surrey Police and the Health and Safety Executive.
