Vancouver-born actor Ryan Reynolds was hit by a vehicle in the parking lot of the Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver on Friday.

According to CTV, the incident occurred in the afternoon or evening and there were no injuries to anyone involved, including Reynolds. It occurred when Reynolds was leaving the parking garage.

A paparazzo is believed to be responsible for the hit and run incident, which has been described by police as a “minor crash.” The paparazzo allegedly took photographs of the actor then jumped into his car and hit Reynolds on his way out, The Province reports.


Reynolds is in Vancouver to film 20th Century Fox’s cinematic adaptation of Marvel’s Deadpool, a spinoff of the studio’s long-running X-Men series.

This includes a two-week closure of the Georgia Viaduct during most daytime hours. Filming on the arterial road is expected to end on April 18 at the very latest, but the production will remain in B.C. until the end of May.

Filming resumed on Saturday with Reynolds tweeting a photo from the viaduct set.
