Injured Transformers 3 actress awarded $18.5 million settlement

  • The family of an actress injured on the set of Transformers 3 has been awarded an $18.5 million settlement.

    Gabriela Cedillo was left brain-damaged after she was hit by a piece of metal during a stunt sequence.

    An investigation into the incident found that a weld, which connected a car to a tow cable, failed during filming of the blockbuster sequel Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

    Cedillo was driving a car in the background of the shot on a set in Indiana in 2010 when the stunt vehicle broke loose.

    A portion of the 26-year-old actress’ skull was removed and she now suffers from memory loss, seizures and is blind in one eye.
