Apa was in a Car Accident. He had a 45-minute drive home after work. It was also after midnight when the crash occurred. Apa had fallen asleep behind the wheel of his car and crashed into a light pole.

Apa was taken to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries. He was very lucky, although his car was declared inoperable after the accident. The passenger side of the vehicle was destroyed by striking the light pole. Cole Sprouse, a costar and close friend of Apa, was going to be in the car that night, but there was a change of plan last minute.

Since the accident, many cast members of "Riverdale," especially Cole Sprouse, have wanted better safety precautions put in place to help the cast and crew members, especially after working such long days.

The need for better safety precautions

Since the accident, there has been a lot of controversy when it comes to how the actors are treated. WBTV does not provide transportation for actors, especially outside of the United States. The policy states that actors are responsible for their own transportation to and from work.

However, it has been stated that actors are always told they can get a taxi or stay at a hotel near the film set if they feel they can't drive.

This accident is one of many we've seen this year when it comes to Hollywood cast members. In July, stuntman John Bernecker fell to his death on "The Walking Dead" set. In August, professional racer S.J. Harris died in a fatal accident on the set of "Deadpool 2," which is still being investigated.

"Riverdale" was a hit among fans when it was released. It has been gaining popularity ever since. Now, many cast members are fighting for better protection rights. It seems that all of the cast members have felt the difficulty in dealing with this car accident. Certain people are very worried that with the long hours the cast members are working, someone will end up essentially working themselves to death.

Perhaps it's time to think about new standards in the filming industry, in order to protect these actors and actresses better.
