Dylan O'Brien, the star of the highly popular Maze Runner movies, was severely injured on the set of the newest film when he was accidentally run over by a car.

Dylan, according to TMZ, suffered multiple broken bones after the stunt went horribly wrong on March 17. The 24-year-old actor was immediately rushed to the hospital in British Columbia and is undergoing treatment for his injuries.

The actor plays Thomas in the movie franchise and was filming a scene for the third film, Maze Runner: The Death Cure.

The actor also stars in MTV's Teen Wolf, in which he plays Stiles. He is often recognised for his role in The Internship opposite Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.

Based on social media posts, it seems as though filming for The Death Cure was drawing to an end when Dylan was injured. On March 14, he re-tweeted a post by actor Aml Ameen's that said, "S/O the fam on final part of Maze now! miss you guys @kihonglee @EGVGotham @DexterDarden @PoulterWill @dylanobrien @wesball @kScodders."

A spokesperson for the film confirmed the incident to TheWrap.

"Dylan O'Brien was injured yesterday while filming Maze Runner: The Death Cure in Vancouver, Canada," a Fox spokesperson said. "He was immediately transferred to a local hospital for observation and treatment. Production on the film will be shut down while he recovers. Our thoughts go out to Dylan for a full and speedy recovery."

Maze Runner: The Death Cure will be the third film in the franchise. The second movie, Scorch Trials, hit theatres in September and grossed $81.6 million at the box office. The first film has earned $102 million since its debut in 2014, according to TheWrap.

Actress Britt Robertson, who has been dating Dylan since 2012, has yet to publicly comment on her beau's accident, though she isn't incredibly active on social media.

The couple is the picture of young love most days, just not in the work place.

"I hate when he's on set watching me work," she told Teen.com. "I think it's because we're both actors and very aware of the process."

"He hates it when I'm on set when he's working and vice versa," she added. "I think it makes sense that we're a little shy and sensitive about working in front of our significant others - to me it makes sense."

"When I go visit him I don't even go on set," she said. "And, when he visits me it's very rare that I'll go on set."
