New details are emerging regarding an on-set accident during filming for Eddie Murphy's upcoming movie The Pickup.

First responders took eight people to hospitals following a two-vehicle crash on-set, the Georgia State Patrol confirmed to PEOPLE. A spokesperson for Amazon MGM Studios previously told PEOPLE that the April 20 incident took place while filming an action scene, resulting in several crew members being injured on the film's Atlanta set.

The crash occurred between an armored GMC car and a BMW vehicle as the production filmed a stunt sequence, per the GSP. Both vehicles flipped over and veered off a road after colliding. Two crew members who were seated in the back of the armored car were ejected when the car's back doors opened, the GSP said, adding that they sustained life-threatening injuries.

A third passenger in that back area — five crew members were in the back of the armored car — also sustained serious injuries, though they were not ejected, per the GSP. Following the incident, five people were taken to Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital and three more were taken to WellStar Cobb Medical Center in Austell, Georgia for treatment.

Grady Memorial Hospital did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

"We are so grateful and blessed that our beloved friend is still alive, but his road to recovery will undoubtedly be long, difficult, and faced with unimaginable challenges," the page reads.

The organizer of Haven's GoFundMe did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
