Production was halted and multiple injuries were reported after a stunt went awry on the set of the upcoming Spectrum/Sony Pictures TV series “L.A.’s Finest,” Deadline reports. The incident reportedly took place Thursday afternoon at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro, Calif., during filming of a car crash sequence for the Gabrielle Union-Jessica Alba series, based on the “Bad Boys” movie franchise.

“Deadline has since confirmed with sources that the two injured were ‘LA’s Finest’ executive producers/co-showrunners Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier,” Deadline reports.

The report adds: “A source tells Deadline that the incident involved a stunt car that crashed into a cargo crate. The container and/or the car then smashed into the video village — an area where the producers and director can watch the scene on monitors — that had been set up behind the crate.”

The nature of the injuries was not reported, but Deadline quotes Lt. Philip Heem of the Los Angeles Port Police saying: “We had two injuries, one being worse than the other.”

Deadline adds: “Both were transported to hospitals by ambulance — one was taken to San Pedro Peninsula and the other to Harbor UCLA. We hear one of the two was released from the hospital Thursday night.”

Today’s scheduled filming was reportedly canceled.
