It is unfortunate that we must report an extra has been seriously injured during the filming of Transformers 3. The woman was setting in her vehicle when a object from a stunt went flying towards her, giving her a serious head injury. The woman was not intended in the part of any stunts however.

For more details click here, or here.

It is sad that something like this would happen, and we would like to wish her a quick recovery here at Seibertron.com.

Horrible, hope she recovers. Im sure the production company are doing everything they can to help her along.

Maybe a special mention in the credits is in order?

At the risk of being incredibly cynical, they're probably too worried about a "where there's blame, there's a claim" scenario.

It is an unfortunate thing that this had to happen, but also unfortunate is that it is to be expected from a Michael Bay film...(poor Shia could be having a hook for a hand now due to the last film's accident) IMO anyone within the vicinity of film shooting should be wearing heavy duty PPE, a flak jacket and a helmet...hope she pulls through! :-(

Most unfortunate. I hope she pulls through and the doctors can get her back on her feet quickly.

Shia Lebeouf's accident happened when he was out drunk driving. It was not part of the film shoot. So unless you're gonna say Michael Bay gave him the booze, the blame for that one ends with Shia.

As for the current accident, it is unfortunate when these things happen and hopefully the woman comes out alright.

All the best for her! Hopefully the non-stunt-involved extras were cautioned beforehand!

And yes I'd definately give her a credits mention too!

Yes, they may offer her compensation; she may be forgiving too!

I remember Bay or someone else on the BD of one of the films (pretty sure it was RotF) mentioned how infrequent accidents were on his sets, even with all the explosions and stuff, all due to planning and what not. And I believe they were also thankful for having gone thru the films scotch-free so far.

I feel the same way, with as much nitty gritty stuff as they do in these films I'm thankful there's been nothing up 'till now.
I pray the woman turns out alright.

Hopefully she'll recover. I don't like it when people are incidentally injured, so really hoping she's OK. ;) :PRAY: ;)^

Incorrect. Shia was not intoxicated during the accident. He refused a breathalyzer and I believe a blood test, but the cops concluded that he was not under the influence of anything. There were no drugs and no alcohol involved.

As he was driving his cast mate Isabel Lucas (Alice) home, a man ran the red light at the intersection he was traveling through, t-boned Shia's pickup and because his arm was hanging out the window like many drivers do, his hand was crushed by the truck rolling over due to the impact.

The accident was not Shia's fault. He was fined, I believe, for being uncooperative with the police by denying them the breathalyzer.

This accident? On set. This one very well could be Bay's fault. From what I read (and I admit, I haven't checked since this first broke), she was an extra who wasn't even supposed to be part of the stunt but they included her in the scene anyway.

The liability, lies with the filmmakers. I hope she survives and with no long term or permanent affects.

:(

Just when you thought that the film couldn't get more realistic about human casualties in a Transformer war...

No one's telling the public just yet. Last we heard is that she's alive, and in critical condition with a serious head trauma.

Even if it's not his fault. (Which we don't know yet. Even I'm willing to entertain the possibility.)

On Fox News this morning they said the lady needs brain surgery and showed a clip from transformers RotF and a clip of the Generation 1 cartoon. All I heard was BRAIN and Geration 1 Cartoon.

This article says she's in stable condition which is very good considering it also says she was in critical condition when she was first brought in. I hope she recovers quickly and there isn't any long term damage.

And to the post a couple back, I'm sorry I mischaracterized Shia Lebeouf. The report I had heard was that he was drunk driving and I didn't put much thought into the story after that. My point was that people are so quick to blame Michael Bay for what it likely an unforeseeable accident just because they don't like flames on Optimus Prime.
