Extra Seriously Injured on ‘Transformers 3’ Set

Production during the last day of shooting in Chicago reportedly put on hold

An accident on the set of Paramount's “Transformers 3” has left production suspended and an extra on the big budget movie seriously injured.

The woman, 24-year-old Gabriela V. Cedillo, sustained a serious head injury while filming a scene in northern Indiana, according to the State Police.

Cedillo was driving a car when an “object” hit her 2006 Honda and went through the windshield striking her. She was not part of the stunt team, and the car was her own.

Cedillo was airlifted from the area to Loyola Medical Center in Maywood, Illinois.

"The vehicle was being towed by another vehicle," extra Blaine Baker told an ABC affiliate. "The cable between the two vehicles broke. It whipped around and sliced through the woman's car and sliced through her skull, apparently."

There is no word on Cedillo's condition.

Today was supposed to be director Michael Bay's final day of shooting in the Chicago area, but production was suspended for the day.

A spokesperson for Paramount Pictures issued this statement on behalf of the studio: "Our thoughts and prayers are with Gabriela and her family and loved ones."
