Paramount won’t be fined for ‘Transformers 3’ accident

Officials close Indiana investigation

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana officials say they won’t fine Paramount Pictures or production crews over an accident during filming of “Transformers 3” that left a woman with brain damage.

Gabriela Cedillo was working as an extra when she was hit in the head by a piece of flying metal during the filming of a stunt sequence in Hammond, Ind.

Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration spokesman Marc Lotter says an investigation found the Sept. 1 accident occurred due to the failure of a weld connecting a car to a tow cable. He says the weld was made by a certified welder and all necessary safety precautions were in place.

Lotter says the mishap was “an unfortunate and unforeseeable accident.”
