A screenshot from the fateful scene in the Rat Patrol episode, "The Take Me To Your Leader Raid". During this high-speed chase scene, the jeep carrying Chris George, Gary Raymond, and Justin Tarr overturned, severely injuring Chris and Gary. News of the near-fatal crash spread quickly, and soon interviews, including the following one, about the accident were printed: HOLLYWOOD (AP) - "By all rights, we should be dead." said Chris George, star of the desert war television series, The Rat Patrol. "It's a miracle we aren't." agrees co-star Gary Raymond. They and another actor in the series, Justin Tarr, are survivors of a jeep accident that might well have been the end of their careers, as well as Rat Patrol. It happened last week on dry lake bed at Rosanond, Calif. The company was shooting a scene in which Tarr drove a jeep around a wrecked German half-track during a battle. George was seated beside Tarr, and Raymond stood on the rear with a mounted gun. "The whole thing happened in slow motion." recalled George. "I could feel the right side of the jeep lifting, and I began to think we were going to roll over. I thought Gary could probably leap clear, since he was on the back. I looked over at Justin and guessed he would probably get killed, and probably I would, too. The jeep flipped up and over and the started to come down on us. I said to myself, 'This is it.' But the jeep didn't come all the way down. The gun mount on the back had acted as a roll bar." Raymond, the British member of the cast, had jumped as the jeep started to roll. He lay on the ground with a broken ankle. Crew members rushed over to lift the jeep from the other two actors, who were pinned under it. George seemed to be the most seriously hurt: Tarr had escaped with only an injured arm. All were taken to a desert hospital, and it was feared George might have suffered a fractured skull and broken vertebra. "Now it appears that I had a concussion, tore something in my neck and may have a hairline fracture of the vertebra." said George at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Hollywood. "I also had abrasions all over my body." The future plans of Rat Patrol depend on his recovery.
