The stunt double for the actress "collided with a camera crane while performing a motorcycle stunt" causing "multiple and severe injuries".
The 39-year-old American actress informed friends and fans about the severity of the accident on social media in a heartfelt message.
She wrote; "I wasn’t personally there to witness it, but from the reports I got, it was awful. None of us have experienced anything like this in our careers making action films and hope we never do again. It’s a miracle that she survived."
