Car crashes into vehicle guarding President Biden’s motorcade

A car crashed into a parked SUV that was guarding President Joe Biden’s motorcade on Sunday night while he was leaving a visit to his campaign headquarters.

The president and first lady Jill Biden were unharmed.

While Mr Biden was walking from the campaign office to his waiting armored SUV, a saloon hit a Secret Service vehicle that was being used to close off traffic junctions near the headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, for the president’s departure.

The car then tried to continue into a closed-off junction, before the Secret Service surrounded the vehicle with weapons drawn and instructed the driver to put his hands up.

Mr Biden paused and looked over toward the sound, surprised, before he was ushered into the vehicle, where his wife was already seated. They were driven swiftly back to their home.

Mr Biden’s schedule was otherwise unaffected by the incident.

The Secret Service has not yet commented.
