Jason Priestley, the former Beverly Hills, 90210 actor, has been rushed to hospital after taking a nasty fall from a horse while filming on the set of his new show, The Code.

Jason Priestley Suffers Concussion After Being Thrown From Horse

The incident occurred on Monday, reports TMZ, and doctors kept Priestley overnight as he has a history of concussions and they feared he may have sustained another. The precaution was a necessary one as the actor subsequently revealed in a tweet that he had.

“Hey guys, thanks for all the kind words,” Priestley wrote on Twitter, “It’s true, I did get thrown off a horse on set… I got my bell rung pretty good… Because I Have a history of concussions, they took me to see a neurologist for an assessment. He advised I take a few days off as I had suffered a Concussion… But I am definitely on the mend and looking forward to getting back to work with all the wonderful people on The Code.”

This isn’t the first time the actor has been in a major accident. Back in 2002 he broke his back and feet in a race car crash in Kentucky.
