Alec Baldwin was shooting a scene on Friday when a sound truck crashed into a plow line on the set of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in Studio City, California.

The 55-year-old actor was working under a red light at the time when the crash occurred, which reportedly caused the truck to lose control, careening toward both of the actor’s stools. The first one hit the driver of the truck on the head and she sustained minor injuries. Baldwin and Crews — who plays Jake Peralta on the series — weren’t hurt.

As Brooklyn Nine-Nine continued to shoot, Baldwin remarked on social media: “the other one plowed into me (not Jake) and then plowed into the truck.”

The actor continued to tweet before directing his fans to an on-set petition to get the California Highway Patrol to step in and help.

I’m shooting on the set of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and my sound truck has a broken neck, blew a tire, and lost control so they’re going to take us down… twitter.com/i/web/status/1… —

Whether or not the California Highway Patrol will step in is unclear. No incidents such as this have happened in Los Angeles during filming, according to an LA Times story from 2016. In some cases, the state DOT, or the Insurance Protection Corp. has been helpful with recommendations, but those recommendations are seemingly not always followed, said Aaron Lerner, a spokesman for Hollywood Police Protective League. He explained that a larger handful of accidents occur on film and television sets throughout the country. The incidents could range from “garage catches to weather and fires and drunk drivers,” to mishandled skid marks, or physical fight situations, Lerner said. “The bigger issue has to do with safety and recommendations from the DOT to adjust to the exact case.” However, complaints from the union are submitted to Hollywood Police and to the FAA, he added.

According to Lerner, as a result of the low number of incidents, the industry has had to approach the question differently. “There isn’t a uniform policy of what should happen on a set so we have to adapt a different policy and operate with different rules to fit different situations,” he said. “If you’re going to send your film crew across the country, you’ve got to make sure they know what the guidelines are.”

Speaking of safety and accidents on set, yesterday a truck on set of a “actor car show ” hit the truck next to me and left a plow lady bloody @NYPD7NY… twitter.com/i/web/status/1… —
