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.
