Tragedy Strikes James Bond Movie Set

The James Bond Movies are full of action and stunts, but sometimes they don't go as planned.

A stuntman was seriously injured while filming a car chase scene today in the Italian resort town of Lake Garda.  He suffered head injuries as he and another stuntman crashed on a winding road for the chase sequence.  He is recovering at a nearby hospital in Verona. 

This isn't the first accident to happen on set of Quantum of Solace. Last Saturday an Aston Martin went plunging into the Lake. Luckily no one was hurt in that crash. But talk about expensive stunts!
