Apparently a DC cop responding to a call managed to make his way through the closed set of Transformers 3 and ended up taking Bumblebee to Plow Town during an unscripted scene of auto-eroticism. Woopsie.
While the movie was filming a car chase scene on 3rd Street and Maryland Ave in southwest D.C., the police SUV collides with a yellow Chevy Camaro, which in the movie series is known as the character Bumblebee.
The police SUV was not supposed to be there and the wreck itself was not scripted.
The police officer driving the SUV is a veteran bomb technician. He was taken to a local hospital and sustained minor injuries.
Sources tell FOX 5 that he was running to a call to 9th and F Street and was apparently using a different radio channel than the police officers who were securing the perimeter for the movie.
I, for one, applaud this man for "accidentally" taking out Bumblebee. Real smooth. Plus he's a bomb technician. You know, I could really use someone like you on my team. That said, who knew they're making another Transformers movie? Did Michael Bay not get the memo about me not even seeing the second one? YOU DUN GOOFED, MIKE!
Hit the jump for a video of the crash.
Thanks to Madi, Mark and Dj Azer, who would have knocked that robot on its ass and stolen his hood ornament.
