A cameraman was taken to hospital with serious injuries after he was struck by an SUV being driven by a stuntman on an East Vancouver film set – believed to be that of upcoming BBC America series Dirk Gently starring Elijah Wood – early Wednesday morning.

The incident happened at around 12:30 am near East Broadway and Guelph Street. The 55-year-old camera operator’s injuries, while serious, are non-life threatening.

Constable Brian Montague with the Vancouver Police Department says the man was conscious when he was taken to hospital.

The VPD Collision Investigation Unit and Worksafe BC are investigating the circumstances behind the incident. No other injuries were reported.
