Tragedy struck the Transformers 3 set today. 24-year-old Gabriela Cedillo was airlifted to Loyola Medical Center in Maywood, IL., after a tow cable apparently split her skull.
Indiana State Police have revealed that Cedillo was not a member of the stunt team, but an extra for the movie.”Preliminary investigation revealed that shortly before 7 p.m, the movie crew was filming a stunt using numerous vehicles and drivers,” stated the police. “During this stunt, an object struck a 2006 Toyota, hitting the vehicle, and then went through the windshield hitting the driver.”
According to Blaine Baker, another extra on the set of the latest Michael Bay flick, Cedillo was in a vehicle being towed by another vehicle, when “the cable between the two vehicles broke. It whipped around and sliced through the woman’s car and sliced through her skull, apparently.”
Her car continued to plow into a cement divider where it continued a mile before slowing to a stop.
Police are still looking into the matter, but Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks representatives have yet to comment and there is no word from the hospital on Cedillo’s condition.
