'Transformers 3' producers cleared of penalties for accident

More than one month after an extra was injured after a tow cable snapped on the set of Transformers 3, the Indiana Occupation Safety and Health Administration have decided the blockbuster movie’s producers will not be charged with any wrongdoing, Variety reports.
