Police SUV Drives onto Set of Transformers, Gets Hit by Bumblebee

(Video Link)

The next Transformers movie is currently being filmed in Washington, D.C. A police SUV found its way onto the closed set and was hit by the car representing 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 25-year veteran senior explosive ordinance technician. He was taken to a local hospital and sustained minor injuries.

Law enforcement sources tell FOX 5 that he was driving to a call for a suspicious package incident nearby and was using a different radio channel than the police officers who were securing the perimeter for the movie.

Cluck: He may have been under the impression that the cop blocking the street was part of the perimeter set up for the suspicious package call.

Krikkit: When you're driving lights and sirens in an emergency situation it would be easy to overlook traffic congestion.

JBSpesh: The SUV is also a Chevy :)

Remind me not to buy a Chevy. That thing is totalled and there's barely a mark on the SUV. Or maybe it was rigged

BTW the cop had every right to be there, even if it was a closed set. He was responding to an emergency call. What I want to know is how come the cops (doing a bad job of) securing the perimiter didn't respond to the emergency call? Is a film set more important than an emergency or is it just the film set pays more into the city's coffers?
