Dylan O’Brien has been hospitalised after he was reportedly run over on the set of Maze Runner.

O'Brien was hit by a car and suffered multiple injuries on the Vancouver set of the upcoming film Maze Runner: The Death Cure, according to reports by Variety and TMZ. The 24-year-old was taken to hospital in Vancouver, in Canada so he could be treated and monitored.

20th Century Fox did not comment on how he sustained his injuries but said production on the film has been suspended while he recovers. The studio said in a statement: “Production on the film will be shut down while he recovers. Our thoughts go out to Dylan for a full and speedy recovery.”

James Dashner, the author of the Maze Runner novels which have been adapted for film, said O’Brien was hurt but “not in a life-threatening way”.

The Death Cure is the third instalment in the Maze Runner series. O’Brien stars in the first two films and has also appeared in Teen Wolf and The Internship.
