US President Joe Biden’s motorcade involved in accident

US President Joe Biden

President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden were safe on Sunday night when a car collided with a motorcade SUV that was part of the president’s security detail.

The incident occurred shortly after the Bidens left their campaign headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware. Fortunately, both the president and the first lady were unharmed, according to a witness who spoke to Reuters.

The evening started with the Bidens leaving the Biden-Harris 2024 headquarters in downtown Wilmington after sharing a meal with members of their re-election team.

As they were departing at around 8:07 PM, a reporter posed a question to President Biden. It was at this moment that a silver sedan, displaying Delaware license plates, collided with one of the motorcade SUVs that was positioned to shield the presidential motorcade near the entrance of the campaign headquarters, as reported by the White House press pool.

Television footage captured the swift response of the Secret Service, who escorted President Biden to his vehicle immediately after the impact. The silver sedan, visibly damaged at its bumper, was promptly surrounded by security officers. With the driver’s hands raised, agents took defensive positions and drew their weapons.

Fortunately, the incident did not escalate further, and the Bidens were able to safely return to their residence in Wilmington following the ordeal. The details surrounding the circumstances of the collision and the driver’s intentions are yet to be disclosed.
