Dylan O’Brien’s Accident Wasn’t As Life-Threatening As They Made It Seem

By  | 

#GetWellSoonDylan — that’s a topic that’s been on and off trending on Twitter ever since news broke that Dylan O’Brien was rushed to the hospital after an accident on the set of The Maze Runner: The Death Cure; an accident that sounded incredibly life-threatening.

Fortunately, while the 24-year-old is still being treated, we at least know one thing: it’s not a ‘life-threatening’ situation. Thank god. Although reps reported that he suffered “severe injuries,” including “multiple broken bones” after being RUN OVER BY A CAR while shooting the third and final film in the YA franchise, several people close to the Maze Runner‘s leading man confirm that he’s going to make it, like TMR director Wes Ball and TMR author James Dashner:

(DECIPHERED: “Well, it’s been a whirlwind of emotions these past few days. I’ve been overwhelmed with feelings of anger and sadness and guilt. But ultimately I find myself left with just a deep love and respect for Dylan. He is one tough cookie. I’m sorry for the grief this accident has caused his friends and family as well as my wonderful cast and crew. It’s scary seeing your friend get hurt, but fortunately, Dylan is going to be just fine. After a few weeks of rest and recovery he will be back up and running to finish our adventure together. All the best.”)

After word got out, his Maze Runner co-stars sent their well wishes:

I have no doubt my boy #dylanobrien will make a full recovery. I'll be doing his dance till then.

And so did his Teen Wolf family members:

Last we heard from 20th Century Fox, “Production on the film will be shut down while he recovers.” Get well soon, Dylan! We wish you a speedy recovery.
