The pair play two Los Angeles police officers in the upcoming action film, and while filming a high-speed chase Pena lost control of the mock patrol car after the vehicle's wheels locked when he slammed on the brakes - but luckily the two were spared any major harm.

Pena says, "I crashed the cop car... I couldn't believe it but they (the stunt team) took off the ABS brakes, the Anti-locking Breaking System, and the one street that was paved in all of South Central, we decided to do the scene on (sic). All of a sudden I'm driving and I'm like, 'Oh, no'.

"Literally for six seconds I said that... And then all the sudden I crashed right into it (the wall)... and the airbags (deployed)."
