A special-effects technician was killed Monday in a car crash on a race track south of London while working on The Dark Knight for Warner Bros. According a studio spokesperson and the AP, the victim was in a truck carrying a camera platform that crashed into a tree while following a stunt vehicle.

The timing of this is going to open up old wounds for the folks who worked on the Universal film opening this weekend, The Kingdom. During that shoot, three crew members passed away, one during an on-set collision between an SUV and a small crew vehicle.
