WASHINGTON, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- A Washington police officer sustained minor injuries when his vehicle was hit by a yellow Chevy Camaro during the filming "Transformers 3," authorities said.

The collision occurred Monday during the filming of a car-chase scene, Fox News reported.

Law enforcement sources told FOX 5 the police officer driving the sport utility vehicle involved in the crash is a 25-year veteran senior explosive ordinance technician who was on his way to answer a call for a suspicious package when he was hit by the Camaro known as Bumblebee in the film franchise.

The officer, whose name was not reported, is believed to have been using a different radio channel than the one used by officials securing the perimeter for the movie, the sources told Fox.
