Dylan O'Brien will be fine

DYLAN O'Brien is going to be "just fine".

The 24-year-old actor was run over by a car while shooting scenes for 'Maze Runner: The Death Cure' in Vancouver, Canada, on Thursday (17.03.16) but his director Wes Ball has reassured fans he will be OK after a few weeks rest.

In a handwritten note shared on Twitter, he wrote: "It's scary seeing your friend get hurt, but fortunately, Dylan is going to be just fine. After a few weeks of rest and recovery he'll be back up and running to finish our adventure together."

The 35-year-old filmmaker admitted he feels "anger, sadness and guilt" over the incident and apologised for the "grief" it had caused.

He wrote: "Well, it's been a whirlwind of emotions these past few days.

"I've been overwhelmed with feelings of anger and sadness and guilt. But, ultimately I find myself left with a deep love and respect for Dylan. He is one tough cookie.

"I'm sorry for the grief this accident has caused his friends and family as well as my wonderful cast and crew."

It was previously claimed Dylan may have suffered multiple broken bones after being struck down by the vehicle in the stunt sequence gone wrong.

The former 'Teen Wolf' star is reprising his lead role as Thomas in the 2014 survival-action-thriller 'The Maze Runner' and 2015 sequel 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials'.
