Another Unscripted Car Crash on 'Transformers 3' Set

10/11/2010 4:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Transformers 3 - Unscripted Car Crash There was more trouble on the Washington D.C. set of "Transformers 3" today -- when a cop car drove through the movie's perimeter and collided with one of the movie's main stars ... bright yellow Autobot Bumblebee!



A nearby shop owner tells TMZ there was a lot of police activity in the area right at the time of the accident due to a bomb scare. It is unclear if the cop car involved in the accident was part of that investigation.

UPDATE: D.C. police tell TMZ the cop car involved was part of the Explosives Ordinances Division. We're told the cop driving was taken to a nearby hospital.

Ok people get a clue... even if the set id closed doesn't mean a damn thing... That cop had the right of way end of story.

The fault is on the production and the company in charge of security who should have been able to tell the film crew to stop for the cop...

Clearly there was plenty of time to avoid this and someone needs to check the batteries in their radio.

They just gave the personal injury lawyers who are handling the injured extra's case more ammunition.

durrr...    

well it sure does look like it to me, but i'm no expert, that as many folks as possible are gonna try to extort money out of the insurance policies of this 'blockbuster film production' as it's probably not gonna make a dime without megan fox.......so crash em and bash em please...........a insurance agent with a sociopathic tendency can go a whole long way mind you...:DDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Those cops will spin it as to why were not at fault because after all rules don't apply to them.

yeah, that is usually what starts to happen when 'cool a.s.s dudes' have to actually start working for an income, instead of simply being paid by the boys club world for wasting time on some stupid, brainless drudge.... (automatic money maker)

I am a insurance adjuster and no real claim here other than the police car which clearly the studio's policy will be covering.

If anyone tries to pull personal injury of more than a missed day of work it will be tossed out.


under law all traffic must yield to emergency vehicles. A ambulance or fire truck would be in the same class and have full right to enter the set closed or not.
