'It's everyone's job to take care of both the actors, the crew, and the drivers'

"The circumstances hurt and worry us. We hope that the causes of the accident will be clarified soon and that responsibilities will be assumed," ANDA said in a statement. "It's everyone's job to take care of both the actors, the crew, and the drivers themselves in any production."
