The French actor Mathieu Kassovitz is said to be in a “worrying” state following a motorbike accident that occurred on Sunday, September 3, at the Linas-Monthléry racing circuit in a suburb south of Paris, according to the French news agency Agence France-Presse (AFP).
He was transferred to the medical facility that is located in Kremlin-Bicêtre.
People who are close to him and who have been reached by Le Monde have stated that he has suffered significant injuries, but that his life is not in danger.
According to AFP, he is suffering from “serious injuries to an ankle and pelvis.”
Mathieu Kassovitz Accident Moto: What Happened To Him?
According to his family, Kassovitz has recently recovered from surgery to treat damage to his ankle, leg, and pelvis.
“The operations went well,” his father Peter Kassovitz, who is a film director born in Hungary, stated in a statement that was released by the actor’s agent.
“Mathieu will start the normal process of healing, which includes resting and getting back into shape,”
The authorities in charge of public safety in the area have launched an inquiry into the circumstances behind the injuries.
Initial reports indicate that the actor, who is 56 years old, was the only person engaged in the incident, and that his vehicle did not crash with any other vehicles.
The director of the film was to the race track to get some more experience behind the wheel of his motorcycle.
He was riding a motorcycle by himself when suddenly he was thrown from the vehicle.
According to the information provided by the office of the public prosecutor, interviews with witnesses to the accident, including the actor’s driving instructor, are now taking place.

Since the 1990s, Mathieu Kassovitz has pursued a multifaceted career as an actor, director, and producer.
He is most recognized for his portrayal as Malotru, the covert agent, in the critically acclaimed television series The Bureau.
La Haine, a black-and-white film he directed in 1995 about police brutality and the banlieue, is largely credited with establishing the career of the French actor Vincent Cassel.
The picture earned him a prize at the Cannes picture Festival. Kassovitz has also starred in scores of movies, some of the more notable of which include A Self-Made Hero by Jacques Audiard, Amen. by Costa-Gavras, and Amélie by Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
Alongside Diane Kruger, he is now appearing in the suspense film Visions, which was directed by Yann Gozlan and will be released in theaters on Wednesday.
