Action star Jason Statham was involved in a serious accident on the set of The Expendable 3.

Statham's co-star Terry Crews described the incident on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

"I had a near death experience. We were doing a stunt and Jason Statham was driving the truck and we were supposed to be on the back of this truck and for some reason we were talking, sipping smoothies and he gets in the truck."

He continued, "On the edge of the Black Sea, he literally was supposed to stop the truck, we shoot the whole thing. Well, the truck doesn't stop. The truck rolls over the dock, in the Black Sea with Jason Statham driving!"

"Now, this is the thing – in your mind you have an action film where you're like, if that happens I'm gonna grab the truck, I'm gonna do all this stuff. But I'm like 'Jason! Jason!'"

"I'm in a heap on the ground; he's in the water, in the truck, now we are freaking out. Everybody's screaming, I'm crying and literally, he gets out, swims to the top and the truck is gone. And we're supposed to be on the back of that thing, I was supposed to be on that."

He added, "Let me tell you something, Jason Statham is a true bad, bad, badass."
