Olivia Jackson — a stunt double famous for her work in the “Star Wars” franchise — is in a coma after she was injured on the set of “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.”

Jackson was riding a motorcycle and not wearing a helmet when her bike crashed into a camera arm that malfunctioned.

She sustained head injuries and a punctured lung, and has been in an induced coma since Saturday.
