‘Transformers 3′ Extra Injured During Filming

Thursday, September 2 by

We all know that millions of young minds will be permanently damaged by Michael Bay’s Transformers 3. But usually, the causalities don’t start rolling in until after the film hits theaters. However, it seems this installment of the Transformers trilogy has already claimed its first victim.

Authorities say the "Transformers 3" crew was filming late Wednesday in the Chicago suburb of Hammond, Ind., using several vehicles and drivers. Police say something went wrong and an object went through the windshield of a car, hitting the driver. In a statement, police said the vehicle kept going for a mile before stopping. Police did not release the driver’s name. The person was airlifted to a hospital.

For the love of God, the film hasn’t even reached post production, and people are already being hospitalized. Although based on the description, this might make for one hell of a 3D experience. Even so, we wish the extra a speedy recovery, and pray for an end to the senseless cycle of violence that is the Transformers franchise. (HitFix)
