An actor playing a zombie on the set of the hit cable show "The Walking Dead" is recovering after reports that he was struck by a military vehicle during filming in Georgia.

A police report states that 20-year-old actor Garrett Zane Orr was hit by the vehicle when its brakes didn't function properly.

A spokesperson for the AMC show told WXIA-TV that Orr was flown to Atlanta Medical Center.

Authorities released few details of the Friday accident shortly after it happened, but WXIA-TV obtained the police report and a 911 tape that reveals the new details.

Filming was temporarily halted after the accident, but has since resumed.

The Atlanta station reports that Orr's injuries were not considered life-threatening, and he was released from the hospital Monday.
