A special effects technician died earlier today while rehersing a scene for the latest Batman flick. Apparently after driving into a tree.

It appears one vehicle was undertaking some stunt driving and another 4×4 provided the camera platform to film it…. The second vehicle and a camera operator were involved in a collision with a tree.

Warner Bros Pictures and the entire cast and crew of The Dark Knight are deeply saddened by this tragedy and their hearts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of the deceased.

There is no word on whether or not this will delay filming.
