A person working on the filming of Transformers 3 was seriously injured on the set in Indiana Wednesday night, sources tell NBC Chicago. The person, a female, was transported via helicopter to a Chicago-area hospital after being injured on the set shortly before 7 p.m. An Indiana State Police spokesman did not provide any information as to the person’s condition, what happened or to what hospital they were taken.
We wish her a speedy recovery.
The crew will be filming for the last time in Chicago on Thursday. Millennium Park will be the site of pyrotechnic explosions beginning at about 6 a.m. until 11 a.m., according to information provided by Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications. A helicopter will be above the Chicago River from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., with brief rooftop pyrotechnics at various high-rise buildings along Wacker Drive. And from 7 p.m. until midnight, there will be intermittent street closures on Midway Plaisance between Woodlawn and Dorchester avenues, with limited use of pyrotechnics, the release said.
Some filming is also taking place around the University of Chicago. Parking restrictions are in place.
