Bumblebee Involved In Crash with Washinton DC Police Vehicle During Filming

Update: We have added videos in this post.

Fresh from the District of Columbia, we have images of the Washington DC shoot of Transformers 3!

The biggest news, however, is that the Chevrolet Camaro, Bumblebee's vehicle mode, was involved in a crash with a Washington DC Metro PD SUV.

The crash was not part of filming, and a police officer was responding to a call and drove through the closed off set.

The Chevrolet Camaro, which is Bumblebee's alternate mode, is damaged in the front end.

According to local ABC affiliate WJLA, the crash was not part of the movie.

A Metro PD SUV was responding to a call and took the quickest way to get from point A to point B and it just so happened to be through the Transformers 3 set, WJLA reports.

The video shows that as the Metro PD vehicle, with its lights on, crosses the intersection of the 300 block of Independence Avenue, the Camaro - followed by the Ferrari - broadsides the SUV.

The Metro PD officer was transported to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and the stunt driver of the Chevrolet Camaro seemed unhurt.

The images we grabbed show that the front of the Camaro is a little worse for wear, with carbon fiber parts and liquid spotted in front of the vehicle.

According to TMZ, the police officer was part of the Explosives Ordinances Division, and was reporting to a call located at 9th and F Streets.

The police will respond the quickest way possible, regardless of whether or not the street is closed, Metro PD tells WJLA.

Fox5 reports that the call went out on a different radio channel than the one that Metro PD was using to secure the perimeter for filming.

Additional images also show the crew assembling the mysterious construct that was spotted back in the days of filming in Chicago, IL.

As you saw most of the vehicles were driving away, they are probably off to the shoot at the Air Force Memorial, which is set to take place this evening.

Principle cast members are not expected to be at that shoot, and Tyrese will not be at Washington DC at all. He will be in Atlanta, GA filming Fast and Furious 5 he tells us in a Twitter update.

Take a look at over 100 images in the gallery below.

The rest of the shots include pretty much all of the Autobots, including Bumblebee, Sideswipe, the Twins, Ferrari 458 Italia, Mercedes Benz E-Class, Ratchet, Optimus Prime and Ironhide.

Our images indicate the street closures have already begun near the Capitol and the National Museum of the American Indian. The museum is the oddly-shaped building seen in some of the backgrounds.



Additional videos of the Camaro crash are available at the Fox5 and TMZ.

Transformers 3, rumored to be subtitled Dark of the Moon, is set for a July 1, 2011 release.
