Autobots, roll out... No, wait! – Click above to watch videos after the jump

You know how they say some movies are cursed? It seems that may just be the case for the folks working on Transformers 3. The movie has had its share of crashes, with a few of them being of the "unplanned" variety. The latest incident takes place in Washington D.C. and involves a certain yellow Camaro that Transformers fans know better as Bumblebee.

As a scene was being filmed, a real police vehicle was responding to a call and cut quickly across the set. The two cars collided and the police officer driving the SUV was taken to a nearby hospital, but it appears there are no serious injuries – except to the Camaro, which was covered up and taken away.

Earlier this year, production came to a screeching halt when Gabrielo Cedillo had to be rushed to the hospital. Cedillo, an extra, was driving a car when a cable from a camera vehicle broke loose, smashed through her windshield and hit her in the head. She underwent emergency surgery but her stint in the ICU is up, and her condition is improving.

A trio of videos of this latest accident can be seen after the jump. Thanks for the tip, Mark!

      Well it just goes to show you, pay attention to signs-cops too! He was on his way to an emergency did not heed the notice and never got to the emergency but created another one-Well they say the average IQ of a cop is around 110. No the brightest bulb on the xmas tree is he-hope is OK his family should not have to pay for his stupidity!

      The point of a closed set is to avoid injuries or accidents to both the cast, crew, and civilians. E.g. this scenario. The cast of the movie is not going to be expecting something like that cop tearing through the set (in fact just the opposite), so they're not going to be prepared to respond accordingly. The issue with the officer being an idiot and diving across a closed set is NOT that they are "shooting a movie!" it's that everyone is busy is focused on their tasks and it can cause an accident... like it did. The officer should have thought of that, it is his job to do so.

      That being said... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NOT BUMBLEBEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

      Cops and movie companies thinking they own the streets. I think it's funny that they collided!

        Agreed it teached them both a lesson to co-operate.

      The name of the victim from the earlier accident isn't Gabrielo Cedillo, it's Gabriela.

      The driver of the bumblebee car was extremely lucky on that one. A few more feet and he would have gotten t-boned by a 2500 Suburban right in the drivers door. That's nearly 7,000lbs aimed squarely at his head.

      I think there Was a miss-communication between the police and the Film Crew. The police should Give a heads up that an emergency is Happening and that they have to cut through the movie shoot to get to the Emergency. Rather than blatantly going through a Shooting in progress to reach an emergency (which is extremely dangerous because who knows what they can be doing) and going full speed he should have been informed of a movie shooting was going on and should have slowed down Put the Sirens on a warned them to get out of the Way.
