A security guard working on the set of the CBS crime drama "NCIS" was killed yesterday when "the driver of a production company van blacked out and his vehicle slammed into a tent," according to LA Now. The tent was blocking the victim's view, and he was not able to move out of the way. Now the production has been halted as state investigators probe the incident.

The victim, whose identity has not been released, is a 52-year-old man who "was pronounced dead at a local hospital after the 10 a.m. incident in the 25200 block of Anza Drive in Santa Clarita." The driver of the vehicle reportedly suffers from an "unspecified medical condition" and blacked out behind the wheel, notes the Daily Breeze.

Both the network and the production issued statements expressing condolences to the victim's family and friends. Adds CBS: "We are, of course, cooperating with the local authorities in Santa Clarita to help determine what caused this terrible accident."
