Riverdale safety questions after KJ Apa crashes car after 14-hour day
From BBC - September 22, 2017

A car crash involving Riverdale star KJ Apa has triggered a debate around on-set working conditions.

The actor, who plays Archie in the show, was involved in a collision last week after he says he worked a 14-hour day.

He reportedly fell asleep at the wheel during a 45-minute drive home.

The 20-year-old walked away from the crash but "safety issues affecting performers" are now being questioned.

"This is an extremely troubling situation and we are deeply concerned about the safety of performers on the Riverdale set," said a spokesman for the Screen Actors GuildAmerican Federation of Television and Radio Artists [SAG-AFTRA].

"We are sending a team to Vancouver to review the circumstances surrounding safety issues affecting performers on this production."
