During filming of a car-related stunt for Transformers 3 on Cline Avenue in East Chicago yesterday, local aspiring actress Gabriella Cedillo was seriously injured. She was not trained in stunt work, and was driving her own car when she was injured. She was air-lifted to Loyola Medical Center in Maywood where she is expected to remain for a few more days. The filming scheduled to take place in Millennium Park today was canceled.
