LOOK: KJ APA Involved In Car Accident After Taping For 'Riverdale'!
KJ Apa, who plays the role of Archie Andrews on the hit Netflix series Riverdale, got involved in a late-night car accident after working for 16 hours last September 21. The Kiwi actor reportedly fell asleep while driving the 45-minute ride home when he suddenly crashed into a light pole.
Before the accident, his co-star Cole Sprouse was supposed to tag-along but changed plans at the last minute. Thankfully, KJ did not suffer any serious injuries after the crash, The Hollywood Reporter reported.
US Weekly caught up with Warner Bros. Television who produces Riverdale, following the concerns due to its grueling working hours - "First and foremost, we are extremely grateful that KJ Apa was uninjured during his recent accident. Secondarily, we want to specifically address the characterization that conditions on the set of Riverdale are of concern."
"KJ has repeatedly been informed about making production aware if he is tired or feels unsafe, and if so, either a ride or hotel room will be provided for him. The accident occured last Thursday. Additionally, it is untrue that KJ was taken to the hospital. He was treated by first responders on the scene and released by them. We also sent a doctor to his home later that same day for a follow-up to confirm his well being," they added.
Meanwhile, the 20 year-old actor is back on the set and his co-stars shared photos of him on their respective Instagram stories. Check it out below:
