Riverdale and ex Shortland Street star K.J. Apa was involved in a late-night car crash last week after working a 16-hour day on set of Riverdale.

Apa fell asleep at the wheel during his almost hour-long drive home, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Allegedly the accident happened after midnight outside of Vancouver, Canada, where the series is filmed.

Apa’s vehicle reportedly struck a light pole, destroying the passenger side. His car supposedly could not be fixed.

The 20-year-old was transported to the hospital but did not suffer serious injuries and he was later discharged.

Despite the long hours that actors are required to be on the Riverdale set, THR reports that cast and crew are not provided transportation either to or from set and WBTV’s policy is that actors must coordinate their own transit.
