A production assistant of "Power" was preparing for filming when he was killed by a vehicle that struck him.


An unfortunate accident on location has claimed the life of a crew member of the series, “Power.”


On early Monday, production assistant Pedro Jimenez was laying cones on a parking lane in Brooklyn in preparation for a location shoot when he was struck by an SUV.

According to the NYPD, a 2006 Ford Explorer traveling westbound on Douglas Street rammed into Jimenez. The 63-year-old victim, a longtime employee of the show, was pronounced dead upon arrival at Brooklyn Hospital. The driver, who was also working for the show was 64 and remained at the scene.



New York Police Detective Brown Lee is still investigating the case and unclear about how the vehicle wound up hitting Jimenez. He told USA Today,

"It is unknown why the vehicle moved and lost control. No arrests at this time but this incident is still under investigation.”



Meanwhile, show creator Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson took to Twitter to express his heartfelt loss.

"I just learned we lost Pedro Jimenez, a member of the Power production team early this morning. My prayers and condolences are with the entire Jimenez family.”

Starz also released a statement that read,


“Our thoughts are with Mr. Jimenez’s family as we work to fully understand what has happened.”

While the show wasn’t filming at the time the fatal accident occurred, production has been temporarily ceased to give way for mourning.


The tragic news hitting 50 Cent's show comes in the heels of drama surrounding his son. The estranged father recently said that he "wouldn't have a bad day" if his son, Marquise was hit by a bus. His comment came after a photo of Marquise hanging out with the son of the rapper's rival, Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff. This is the latest in a long-standing feud with his son who publicly described him as childish after 50 Cent dissed Marquise's mother.
