Michael Bay loves collision and mayhem in his films but this one he could have done without.
While shooting Transformers 3 on-location in Washington DC, the Camaro Autobot Bumblebee t-boned a real DC police officer's Tahoe as it was speeding to answer a suspicious package call. The officer was using a different radio frequency than the police detail assigned to keep the Transformers 3 set closed and safe. While the collision looks like a part of the scene as Autobots Optimus Prime, Ratchet and Ironhide motor along, it most certainly is not.
This incident is yet another scar for Bay's third and presumably final Transformers film. A 24-year old woman suffered permanent brain damage last month when a stunt went awry on an Indiana freeway, sending debris hurtling through her windshield.
