WorkSafeBC has released a report on the March 17 accident that happened on the set of "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" in British Columbia which injured the film's lead actor Dylan O'Brien.

The report suggests that O'Brien, who plays Thomas in the "Maze Runner" trilogy, suffered "concussion; facial fracture and lacerations" in the on-set mishap that temporarily shut down the production of the Wes Ball-directed movie.

While WorkSafeBC's reporting is anonymous, the incident involving the "Teen Wolf" actor was the only serious accident on a movie set in the Canadian province last month.

"A worker was leaving the filming area on a motorcycle after completing a stunt sequence. The motorcycle went into a slide while turning onto a side road. The worker struck his head on the pavement and temporarily lost consciousness," read the WorkSafeBC's report.

Accident summaries like this are published for every incident as a matter of policy. "Incident summaries are published to alert employers and workers to hazards in their industry.

According to Teen Wolf News, a more thorough report from movie studio 20thCentury Fox is expected to be filed soon.

A few days after the incident, Ball tweeted about his overwhelming feelings of "anger and sadness and guilt."

The 35-year-old filmmaker tweeted a handwritten statement where he described the "whirlwind of emotions" he's been going through the past few days.

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

He continued: "I'm sorry for the grief this accident has caused his friends and family as well as my wonderful cast and crew. 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 will be back up and running to finish our adventure together. All the best."

"Maze Runner: The Death Cure" is slated for a Feb. 17, 2017 release.
