According to the BBC, a special effects technician was killed on the set of The Dark Knight in England, when the camera truck in which he was traveling struck a tree.

The accident happened off-set and there was no filming taking place, movie company Warner Bros Pictures said.
The victim was on a camera truck which was following a stunt vehicle, believed to have been the Batmobile.
An ambulance spokeswoman said he was pronounced dead at a test track in Longcross, near Chertsey, in Surrey.

We can only hope that this will serve to unite the cast and crew behind the cause of making a really kickass movie in his memory.  Oh, and our prayers go out to him and his family.  What, can’t it be both?  You’re a jerk, conscience.
