Stuntman Gravely Injured on James Bond Set in Italy

MILAN, Italy - Officials in the Italian resort of Lake Garda say a stuntman was gravely injured in a car crash while filming the new James Bond movie.

A spokesman for the northern town of Limone sul Garda says the stuntman suffered serious head injuries when he and another stuntman crashed during a car chase sequence on a winding lakeside road.

The spokesman says the stuntman underwent surgery at a hospital in nearby Verona. He said the second stuntman was slightly injured.

The accident occurred on the last day of filming at the lake on Wednesday.

It is the second accident on the Italian set of "Quantum of Solace." An Aston Martin went off the road Saturday and plunged into Lake Garda. Producers said the driver suffered minor injuries.
