Trump's Motorcade Involved In Accident, Multiple Officers Reported Injured

Trump, who is riding in an armored limousine, is reportedly fine.

Police officers tend to a fallen colleague after a police motorcycle accident during U.S. President Donald Trump's motorcade in Lake Charles, Louisiana, U.S., May 14, 2019.

According to Reuters, local police officers were escorting Trump to an event in Louisiana when the crash occurred and at least three officers were on the ground and injured.

In photos taken of the accident by reporters, officers can be seen laying near the road, with other officers appear to be offering medical assistance.


White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders told Bloomberg that the officers were "being treated for injuries at a nearby hospital and are in stable condition".

According to USA Today, the officers injured in the accident were from the Westlake Police Department, Sulfur Police Department, and the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

The accident did not impact the movement of Trump's motorcade, Secret Service spokesman Mason Brayman said.
