Halle Berry's accident on set of 'The Hive' won't be investigated

Halle Berry's head injury on a movie set isn't serious enough to warrant a workplace safety investigation, a state official said Wednesday.

"The incident was not reported to Cal/OSHA and was not required to be reported," said Peter Melton, agency spokesman. "She was released from the hospital quickly, so we will not be investigating."

Berry fell and hit her head Tuesday night during a fight sequence on the set of the film "The Hive." She was taken to the hospital as a precaution and released after she was deemed healthy, Berry's representative said in a statement.

Cal/OSHA only investigates workplace accidents caused by unsafe practices that could lead to future injuries, Melton said.

“If she just fell on a concrete floor, we’re not going to go seal off the floor and say it’s dangerous,” Melton said.

Berry has been injured on set several times before. Most recently, she broke her foot on the set of "Cloud Atlas" last year and missed the Academy Awards in February.
