MY NAME IS EARL stars Jason Lee and Jaime Pressly escaped serious injury after two freak near-accidents occurred on the set of the hit U.S. TV show. Lee had to leap from a hospital gurney after it was accidentally launched at high speed at a 18-wheeler truck. On the same day last month (26Feb08), Pressly was almost hit by an out of control SUV that had intruded onto the set - a street that had been blocked off for filming. A source says, "Jason and Jaime were left scratching their heads trying to figure out if they'd done something terrible during the writer's strike. "The incident left the cast and crew pretty shaken."
