A female extra received a severe head injury on the set of “Transformers 3” yesterday in northwest Indiana.
24-year-old Gabriella Cedillo was injured around 7 p.m. on a closed stretch of Cline Avenue, East Chicago, according to the local ABC affiliate. A fellow extra said the stunt involved a vehicle towing another by cable. Allegedly, when the cable snapped, it whipped around and crashed through the windshield of Cedillo’s car.
Today was scheduled to be the film’s last day in the Chicago area, but filming has been canceled at the last minute. It is unknown yet if the cancellation is due to the accident.
