‘Power’ Crew Member Passes Away After Accident On Set
There was an unfortunate accident that took place on #Power’s set that tragically left a man by the name of Pedro Jiminez dead.
According to Deadline, Pedro was fatally struck by a SUV around 4:30 A.M. this morning while reportedly setting up parking cones for a shoot in Brooklyn. A spokesperson for Starz said: “We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of the members of our Power family. Our thoughts are with Mr. Jimenez’ family as we work to fully understand what has happened.”
Pedro has been with the Starz production crew since 2014. NYPD officials say that they are currently investigating what happened. Apparently, the driver of the SUV was also a part of the Power crew.
As of now, Power has temporarily shut down production out of respect for their crew member who passed. There’s no word on when production will resume.
We send our thoughts and prayers to Pedro’s friends and family!
