Officials said a bystander was killed when a garage collapsed after some kind of movie production was done in Albuquerque.
Police say it happened Wednesday during the cleanup. They said a truck backed into a parking lot at an apartment complex, the overhang collapsed and killed a person unrelated to the film.
Albuquerque police say it happened in Cardenas – not far from Gibson and San Pedro.
KOB 4 received advice that this production be called “Pearblossum Highway” or “Pure Blossom Highway.”
A KOB 4 producer who contacted them did not say either way and they said the tragedy did not happen on set. They said they finished production the day before this accident happened.
The production is not listed on the New Mexico film office’s website.
One manufacturer also told KOB 4 that the driver was a union employee.
KOB 4 has also reached out to the local union and film office for an interview as we try to learn more – we’re waiting for a response.
