  • Riverdale's KJ Apa in Car Accident, Fell Asleep at Wheel After 16-Hour Workday on Set

Apa was taken to hospital and discharged without serious injury, THR reported.

While WBTV's policy is that actors are responsible for transportation to and from set, especially when shooting outside the USA, a studio source notes that actors are allowed to call a taxi or stay in a nearby hotel on the studio's dime if they feel it is unsafe to drive themselves. Television does not offer transport for the actors and crew members to and from set, even when they're required to work late hours (which is often the case on the hit series).

KJ Apa, who plays Archie Andrews on Riverdale, was driving home after filming last week when he fell asleep and crashed his auto, according to THR.

That's the scoop in a new story from The Hollywood Reporter, which says that Apa apparently fell asleep at the wheel the night of the accident, striking a light pole and totaling his vehicle.

At least one shot at Mattoon high school shooting
A teacher disarmed and apprehended the suspect, but one student was wounded as a result of the gunfire. One person has been arrested after reports of an active shooter at a high school in IL .


Actor Cole Sprouse, who co-stars as Jughead, had reportedly planned to ride home with Apa that night, but backed out "at the last minute". "Someone's going to die".

Riverdale is a production of Warner Bros., and its policy is for actors to provide their own transportation to and from set when production is outside of the United States. Now fans are wondering, is KJ Apa OK after his auto accident? Actors are now responsible for driving to and from set, although a source revealed that they are encouraged to take a taxi or stay in a hotel paid for by the studio.

Apa plays Archibald "Archie" Andrews on the drama series based on the Archie Comics characters.

Elite Daily reached out to Apa's team for a comment, but did not hear back by the time of publication.
