Oh no, Archiekins!

K.J. Apa, the star of the hit series Riverdale, was involved in a late night car crash after falling asleep at the wheel following a 16-hour work day.

The 20-year-old, who plays Archie in the Archie Comics TV adaptation, apparently dozed off while driving the 45-minute trip back to his hotel outside Vancouver, Canada last week.

Apa was taken to a local hospital where he was later discharged without serious injuries. The Aussie actor's car, however, wasn't so lucky; the passenger side was reportedly destroyed after colliding into a light pole, leaving the vehicle inoperable.

Massive demonstrations and protests in St. Louis have officially upended U2's concert in the city, with the band opting to announce early this morning that they are canceling it altogether to avoid safety issues downtown.

The Missouri city is seeing lots of public protests and demonstrations after a not guilty verdict came down early this week from a trial on a police-involved shooting there — a former police officer named Jason Stockley had been charged with first degree murder in the 2011 death of a black motorist, Anthony Lamar Smith, after a high speed chase.
