London — A film production company has admitted health and safety breaches over an accident on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in which Harrison Ford broke his leg.

The actor was struck by a hydraulic door on the set of the Millennium Falcon — his character Han Solo's spaceship — at Pinewood Studios near London in June 2014. He was airlifted to a hospital for surgery.

At a court hearing Tuesday, prosecutor Andrew Marshall said the door "could have killed somebody" had an emergency stop button not been hit.

Foodles Production Ltd, which is owned by the Walt Disney Co., admitted two breaches of health and safety law.

Production on the film was suspended for two weeks after the accident to Ford, who was 71 at the time.
