On the set of Transformers 3 in Washington, DC, they ran into a little problem. That problem was a police SUV. Apparently a veteran bomb squad officer was on his way out to a call and on a different channel than the police officer’s securing the film set for a chase scene for the movie. What ensues is Bumblebee, the yellow Chevy Camaro transformer, crashing into the side of the cop car.
You get a nice view of Transformer Optimus Prime and another (you are going to kill me) Autobot that I don’t know its name. You can hear the police siren, eventually see the cop car, then Bumblebee come out and, WHAMMY. It’s a nice little wreck. The officer was taken to the hospital, but my medically untrained eyes would guess that it was just a precaution. It’s a little weird that he was on a different radio frequency than the cops on set, but that could be normal, not only am I not a doctor, but I’m also not a cop, so that could be normal.
