Deadline reports that O’Brien fractured ‘either his cheekbone or orbital socket’, after he fell off the back of a set which had been designed to look like the rear of a train. Details on the exact injuries O’Brien suffered are still unclear.

In a statement Fox said: ‘Dylan O’Brien was injured yesterday while filming Maze Runner: The Death Cure in Vancouver, Canada. He was immediately transferred to a local hospital for observation and treatment. Production on the film will be shut down while he recovers. Our thoughts go out to Dylan for a full and speedy recovery.’

Writer James Dashner later tweeted: ‘I just want to let everyone know that yes, Dylan was hurt, but that he’s going to be okay. Not life threatening in any way. Production is postponed but certainly not cancelled. All that matters now is that Dylan recovers. We love you, Dylan!!!’

WorkSafe BC, which investigates workplace accidents in British Columbia, said that they had been made aware of the incident and were looking into the reports that the actor had been struck by a car while shooting a scene. They later confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that they were now in communication with the studio and producers over the incident.
