The Time An Extra
Was Run Over By
A Truck On The
Walking Dead
Few fans need reminding just how expendable life is in a zombie apocalypse. While the safety threats were mostly contained to the fictional world of "The Walking Dead," for show extra Zane Orr, real life proved stranger than fiction when he was run over by a truck in Season 4.
Orr was one of many actors on set that day playing a zombie, when a fake military vehicle weighing about two-and-a-half tons, and apparently with bad brakes, ran over Orr's stomach and hip. It sounds terrifying, but according to Project Casting, the 911 call made by production was surprisingly calm.
"He is breathing and conscious," they told the operator. "Our medic is taking care of him right now." Orr was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center and was released from the hospital a few days later but not before getting a visit from co-star Lauren Cohan.
