An award-winning stunt performer is suing CBS and other parties for injuries he claims he suffered on the set of "Hawaii Five-O."
Justin Sundquist doubled for Alex O'Loughlin's character, Steve McGarrett, for an episode titled “He Moho Hou” filmed on July 27, 2016.
He claims in a lawsuit filed on May 10th with the Los Angeles Superior Court of California that he was hit by a fast moving vehicle, resulting in potentially career-ending injuries.
According to the suit, obtained by Deadline, there were a “series of reckless, negligent mishaps … [that] caused or contributed to this accident,” including “a rushed, hectic set,” “lack of safety meeting and clear safety instructions” and “turning a blind eye to controlled substance abuse by key safety personnel.”
He is suing for negligence, requesting unspecified damages and a trial by a jury.
The suit alleges that Sundquist who worked as a stuntman for films like “Furious 7” and “Captain America: Civil War” was at the highest point in his career until he was injured on CBS’s hit show’s set, and that a “key personnel who had safety responsibilities was under the influence of narcotic controlled substances.”
The suit claims the unnamed individual, “enticed certain stunt performers with a quid pro quo: if they supplied him with pills, he supplied them with work.”
Fox News reached out to both Sundquist's attorney and CBS but did not receive comment.
