Producers Cleared in Horrific 'Transformers 3' Crash

10/13/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Transformers 3" producers are not to blame for the terrible on-set car crash that left one female extra partially paralyzed ... this according to state investigators.

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 Gabriela 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."

As we previously reported, Cedillo -- who is now paralyzed on the left side of her body -- filed a negligence lawsuit against Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks earlier this month.

I know the state of Indiana, they are so BROKE and so crooked - I smell a PAYOFF.

That poor girl, I'll make sure to proudly PIRATE T3 instead of paying for a movie ticket.

Thank you AJ. While looking it up I found this.

Earlier in his career, Morrow was in a film called Dirty Mary Crazy Larry. There was a scene where he was supposed to fly in a helicopter. "I’m not getting up in the helicopter… I have a premonition that I’m going to get killed in a helicopter crash." The clue phone was ringing – no one picked up.

Wow!

This is crazy! I used to be a hairdresser and OSHA would shut you down of you didn't have a HAZMAT sheet for all of the freaking hairspray in the building!

There is a big piece of the "investigation" missing. I say IOSHA should drop some cash on her too. After all, it's OSHA'S job to monitor for safety!!

Regarding the Twilight Zone accident -

A few years back I read a plethora of information about that on-set accident.

But while it was Vic Morrow, and while I agree with RIP, I'm not sure he deserves respect.

Vic Morrow was aware live ammunition was used on the set. Vic Morrow was aware the children were working illegally. Vic was aware this fact was being shielded from those who could have a say in the matter. Vic was aware of how dangerous this stunt was going to be.

Vic did not want to do this stunt, but even though he feared or his own life, he still took children into the belly of the beast.

Simply put, had Vic survived, there's the possibility in court that he would have been found the most negligent in the murder of these two children. He carried them there, when he himself feared for his life.

Sorry, he deserves no respect in the murder of the two children.

THE CROW opened even with the star being DEAD brandon lee just as his father was also dead from a movie stunt.THE CROW Did well anyway.The death of the star of gone in 60 secs toby halicki killed the II gone in 60 secs in 1989 the last of the stuntman.Many many accidental shootings of non-stars over the years.diry mary and crazy larry was peter fonda but ripped a sean from vanishing point in which they place a roadblock.Peter fonda is alive and well he was crazy larry so he never died in a helo crash.Apoc now chopped some exras to death when a helo crashed..the history of stunt deaths in movies goes back to the start and no movie is as well known as howard hughes`s hells angels and it can still be rented on digital
