Actor KJ Apa, who plays the character Archie in Riverdale, snapped a photo with a fan outside of Gabby's Country Cabaret, aka the "Whyte Wyrm" on September 19.

Riverdale star K.J. Apa was involved in a late-night vehicle crash following a 16-hour work day, according to The Hollywood Reporter. After being taken to a local hospital, Apa was released without any serious injuries. Apa was driving home after midnight, a forty-five minute drive at the end of a sixteen hour work day.

The incident has reportedly sparked a conversation about safety and protection among the cast, crew and the network, especially after working late hours.

Apa's vehicle reportedly struck a light pole, destroying the passenger side; it was determined that his auto could not be fixed.

"They're working these kids from morning until night", one person close to the production team told The Hollywood Reporter.

The Hollywood Reporter also reports that Cole Sprouse, who plays Jughead, was planning to catch a ride home with KJ that night, but the actor changed his plans last minute. "Someone's going to die".

Riverdale returns for a second season on October 11, 2017.

Apa, Warner Bros and The CW were yet to speak publicly about the crash.

The star wasn't injured and had not publicly acknowledged the crash but USA media are reporting the crash sparked anger on the show's set, and demands for safer working conditions. According to other sources close to the production, the actors can call a taxi or stay a hotel near the set paid by the studio if they feel they're too exhausted to make the drive back home.

Elite Daily reached out to Apa's team for a comment, but did not hear back by the time of publication.
