'Fear Factor' Contestant

Injured in Stunt Accident

8/14/2011 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0813-fear-factor-NBC-EX
A "Fear Factor" contestant got a little more than she bargained for when the stunt truck she was riding on top of hit another car ... but she escaped with no major injuries.

We're told the driver of the stunt truck -- which was going less than 20 mph at the time -- had his vision blocked for a brief period of time, resulting in the truck hitting a parked car that was part of the stunt.

According to our sources, the woman was in a safety harness on the truck and she was shook up from the collision, but was not thrown from the vehicle. She was transported to the hospital by an on-set EMT. We're told she suffered no major injuries and was released from the hospital after a few hours.

A source close to the show tells us the episode stopped filming for the day when the accident occurred, but will resume shooting this week. The woman has not decided if she will return.

The people that run this show should all have to do these stunts before asking regular people to risk their lives just to be on a stupid TV show.

Hey, TMZ, in case you didn't know, it's 2011, not 1999.

This was fun to watch when contestants ate jungle creatures and such. Not fun to watch desperate people attempt ridiculous stunts for cash. Someone may die. I surely hope not.

I hate this show-they're going to keep up this BS with these desperate people until somebody gets killed. Like that other POS show Survivor, they're just taking advantage of people to humiliate and exploit them-for a buck!

When I used to watch the show, I always kept telling myself, I wonder how nobody has ever gotten hurt doing this show? Guess I don't have to wonder anymore.
