DC Police SUV Collides with 'Transformers 3' Camaro

October 12, 2010

D.C. Deputy Fire Chief Ken Crosswhite says no one was injured after a Metropolitan Police SUV collided with a yellow Chevy Camaro on the movie set of "Transformers 3."

The police officer was reportedly en route to a call and collided into the yellow Chevy Camaro known in the films as “Bumblebee.”

Crosswhite says the Monday afternoon incident, which was not part of filming, caused only property damage and fire and rescue workers did not have to treat the people in either vehicle.

Bystanders filmed the incident and told local media they were initially confused about whether the crash was part of the movie.

D.C. police officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Filming for the movie is expected to close roads in Washington and Arlington in the week ahead.
