Girl “seriously injured” on almost final day of filming Transformers 3 near Chicago

Transformers 3 filming

Explore, explore! Repair, repair!

It weighs heavily on my heart to post this news, but now that NBC Chicago has made a post about it, I feel it is ok to say something.

A young girl’s second day of filming went terribly wrong this evening during what seemed to be one of the less-insane stunts performed over the last three days of highway shots for Transformers 3.  Some details were revealed by the NBC article including that the girl’s car was driving against the median for “almost a mile before it came to a stop”.

I don’t want to cause any problems by posting my account yet or anything, but I can tell you that the crew was top-notch.  They handled this unexpected situation swiftly like a well-oiled machine.  This was simply a freak accident and we all wish for the speedy recovery of our unlucky comrade.  It put a somber note upon an otherwise jubilant week of work.

Our prayers are with you.
