A District of Columbia police SUV was involved in an unplanned accident on the set of Transformers 3 Monday and the other vehicle involved in the accident was none other than… BUMBLEBEE!!
That’s right, the iconic yellow Camaro was turning a corner at an intersection when it smashed into the side of the SUV, which was reportedly driven by “a 25-year veteran senior explosive ordinance technician” who was responding to a “call for a suspicious package incident nearby” and had no idea he had ventured into a section cordoned off for the movie according to My Fox DC.
Here’s the amazing footage of the accident showing Bumblebee crashing into the SUV almost in slow motion:
Those were some mighty laid back reactions from the crew don’t you think?!? Their driver just crashed into a police vehicle that wasn’t even supposed to be there and they’re just nonchalantly walking around? Anyway, the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department issued this statement in response to the incident:
“Earlier today, a MPD marked cruiser responding to an emergency assignment, collided with a vehicle involved in the filming of a movie at Third Street and Maryland Avenue, SW. The officer sustained minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital. No civilian injuries have been reported.
The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the facts of the crash and filming of this movie on closed DC city streets has been suspended until safety procedures can be reviewed.”
My Fox DC has since reported that filming was resumed, stating “The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), and the Office of Motion Picture and Television Development (MPTD) announced that following a review of safety procedures, the filming of Transformers 3 will resume with enhanced public safety measures.”
See what happens when you fire Megan Fox!
