My Fox Chicago reports that the extra is 24 year old Gabriella Cedillo from Chicago who was injured when a cable snapped and burst through her Toyota's windshield hitting her. She is currently in critical condition at Loyola Medical Center in Chicago.
“It snapped. The cable snapped, and the cable went into the westbound lane where we were at and hit the girl’s car, smashed the windshield. From the way it looked, I don’t know if she was knocked out immediately or not but the car, because we were already going at a high rate of speed, the vehicle just went, it just kept going,” a witness said, wanting to remain anonymous because of confidentiality agreements.ABC Chicago also reported about the injury.
"The vehicle was being towed by another vehicle," said fellow extra Blaine Baker. "The cable between the two vehicles broke. It whipped around and sliced through the woman's car and sliced through her skull, apparently. ...They completely shut it down. The equipment pertaining to the stunt was impounded by the Indiana State Police," said Baker.Paramount has not released a statement about events on the set. My guess is they are waiting to find out if Mrs. Cedillo recovers from her injuries before fashioning a statement as like it or not, the powers that be are focused on any potential legal fallout and probably prevented the cast and crew, including Michael Bay, from commenting on the record.
