Crash today in DC during filming of Transformers 3- Bumblebee WRECKED! VIDEO INSIDE



Just happened today, should be more information on Fox 5 DC at 5pm. Apparently, the police SUV was on its way to an assignment when it "crossed" into the movie perimeter. WOW!

I hope the dog in the K-9 unit wasn't hurt. Looks like they will be taking another Bumblebee out of the trailer to finish shooting this scene.

Sucks! Wonder if Optimus and co have Geico. 15 minutes could save you 15 percent!

Maybe Bay should make that Police Tahoe an Autobot...takes a hit and looks fine, whereas Bumblebee's all smashed up.

i wonder how that police officer thought it was okay to drive throught there seeing huge cars driving in unisen all over the road(they werent driving like normal cars) and how that entire area is gated and closed and huge ammounts of spectators were around his area looking directly at him and im guessing there were some cameras around the corner were bumblee was coming that he could have seen but naaawww..he just kinda strolled on through.idk if he did that on accident so much buuutt on a side note.why where his sirens on?

Hope the dog is OK if there was one in the K-9 unit.

Explain that one to your boss - I got T -boned by a movie stunt car.

dang, well, looks like the crumple zone did wonders.. I mean seriously. I wonder if they actually have a backup of the car? They probably do, I mean with millions of dollars for a budget what's another 40k car with prototype mods...

oh. and I bet the cop was just responding to an incident. he may have been on duty at the set but got called off. I am sure he wasn't just being a d-bag flashing his lights! I'd sure hope that the police/paramedics wouldn't take the time to wait until they finished filming a scene if they were responding to an emergency.
