The van that cast and crew members were riding in during the filming of the Netflix series The Chosen One was involved in a crash near Mulege on the Baja California Sur peninsula, which led to the deaths of two cast members and the injuries of six others.
According to local media, the accident happened on June 16 and the van overturned after going off the roadway in a desert region. It seemed as if the crew had been working in the Santa Rosalia neighborhood at the time.
The tragedy did not occur on set; rather, it occurred when the van was riding from Santa Rosalía to the local airport.
The Baja California Department of Culture confirmed Friday that Raymundo Garduño Cruz and Juan Francisco González Aguilar passes away. The six wounded and not-named-yet production members include two additional actors and four members of the crew who are all in a stable condition at this time, according to an inner source.
Redrum, the company in charge of The Chosen One‘s production, has temporarily put the show on hold.
