Aston Martin Lake Accident Nothing To Do With Solace

Back in April an Aston Martin DBS crashed into Lake Garda in Italy, and many thought it was a Quantum of Solace stunt gone wrong. Well it turns out the accident had nothing to do with the film, as director Marc Foster told wenn.

“The car wasn’t owned by the film company or related to us. It was an engineer from Aston Martin driving the car to a press conference. He was on his way to breakfast in the morning and drove the car into the lake.

“We were shooting across the lake and, because the car was an Aston Martin, it was linked to us – but it had nothing to do with us.”

He adds, “There was an accident during a car chase sequence and the stuntman was immediately taken to the hospital. He is now almost recovered.

“Apart from that, there was a tiny little thing in the last week of shooting where Daniel (Craig) cut a very deep cut on his finger during a fight sequence. He lost a little bit of skin.”
