Helena Bonham Carter has stopped working on the new "Terminator" to fly back to Britain after four members of her family were killed in a car crash in South Africa reports Sify.com.

Bonham Carter's relatives were on a safari holiday when their minibus spun out of control and flipped over after a tyre burst late last week. Helena's cousin Fiona survived with a broken shoulder, but Fiona's son, mother, sister-in-law and stepfather were all killed in a remote area six hours' drive from Johannesburg.

Bonham Carter has been granted indefinite leave from the sets of "Terminator Salvation" in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to fly back to Britain to comfort her distraught family. Carter plays the small but crucial role of a villain in the new sequel.
