Less than a week after NCIS was renewed for a ninth season, a security guard has died during a tragic accident on the show's set in L.A.
According to law enforcement sources, a 60-year-old man driving a production van had a "medical emergency" and crashed into the set, hitting a 52-year-old male security guard.
The security guard was transported to a hospital, but unfortunately passed away soon after.
Our thoughts go out to the deceased's family and friends.

The ninth season will air in 2012, making it TV's number one animated series with kids 2-11 for 10 consecutive years.
"SpongeBob's success in reaching over 200 episodes is a testament to creator Stephen Hillenburg's vision, comedic sensibility and his dynamic, lovable characters," said Nickelodeon president Brown Johnson.
"Legends of Bikini Bottom", the next SpongeBob special, airs on January 28.
