Security Guard Dies in Crash on 'NCIS' Set in LA

VALENCIA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a security guard on the
Los Angeles County set of the CBS television show "NCIS" has died
after being struck by a van whose driver apparently blacked out.

Sheriff's Sgt. Michael Konecny says the van had just dropped off
passengers Wednesday in Valencia when the driver suffered an
unspecified medical condition and it accelerated suddenly, striking
the guard.

The victim, who was not immediately identified, was pronounced
dead at a hospital.

CBS released a statement offering condolences to the victim's
family and friends.

The network says production on the show has been suspended while investigators try to determine what caused the accident.

"NCIS," a drama about Naval criminal investigators, premiered
in 2003.
