Poor bug, rumor is that he might die too, not but after that horrfic accident that the girl is still in a coma and the family is sueing. One would think Bumblebee's driver or police car would be more careful, lol
While filming in Washington, DC today for Transformers: The Dark of the Moon, the real Bumblebee car was involved in a car crash with a police vehicle responding to an emergency car. YouTube - transformers 3 crash in dc According to TMZ.com, D.C. police said the officer was part of the Explosives Ordinances Division, indicating he was responding to a bomb threat. He was also driven to a nearby hospital, no word on injuries. ABC WJLA reports that the roads were closed, including Maryland Avenue were the accident happened, but police will use the shortest route available to get to a real emergency.
The base camp for Transformers 3 production in Washington D.C. has been discovered, complete with make-up, costume trailers and etc. It is located near the Old Convention Center Parking Lot on 9th Street, between New York Street and H Street.
TMZ is reporting that Transformers 3 has been cleared in the accident that occurred in Hammond, Indiana. The accident led to a significant head injury to extra Gabriela Cedillo. Sadly they also reveal she is paralyzed on left side of her body. No details beyond that nor an update on the lawsuit which will probably take a while to get sorted out.
A rep for the Indiana Occupation Safety and Health Administration tells TMZ ... an investigation into the September 1 accident -- in which a tow cable snapped and sliced through Gabriella Cedillo's skull -- concluded that producers operated by the book in coordinating the fateful stunt.
Instead, IOSHA tells TMZ the accident occurred "due to the failure of a weld connecting a car to a cable. The weld was made by a certified welder and all necessary safety precautions were in place."
The IOSHA rep added, "No citations or fines will be issued. This was an unfortunate and unforeseeable accident."
The family claims, "The mere fact that the welding was performed by a 'certified welder' ... does not in any way suggest that the weld was performed properly." The family continues, "In fact the evidence is clear that it was done in a slip-shod fashion."
The statement concludes, "It is completely irresponsible for even a local government bureaucrat to rush to such sloppy conclusions."
Transformers 3 has officially moved on to post-production, all the talanted ILM artists are hard at work creating the special effects. More then likely we won't see any footage till the Super Bowl TV spot.
