Secret Service confirms unintentional car crash in Biden’s motorcade.

NEW YORK, Dec 18: In an unexpected turn of events on Sunday night, a car inadvertently collided with an SUV in President Joe Biden’s motorcade, resulting in damage to both vehicles and a momentary startle for the President as he exited his campaign headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware.

The US Secret Service promptly confirmed the incident, disclosing that a vehicle in the motorcade had been struck by another car as President Biden was entering his own vehicle. Secret Service spokesperson Steve Kopek clarified to CNN that there was “no protective interest associated with this event,” emphasizing that the collision was not intentional. The incident occurred amid heavy rainfall in Wilmington.

“At approximately 8:09 p.m. today, a Secret Service vehicle securing the President’s motorcade route was struck by another vehicle in Wilmington, DE. There was no protective interest associated with this event, and the President’s motorcade departed without incident,” stated Kopek. He directed further inquiries to the Wilmington Police Department.

The collision, marked by a loud bang on the street, caught the attention of President Biden, who witnessed the commotion. Reporters traveling with the President noted that U.S. Secret Service personnel promptly surrounded the silver sedan responsible for the crash, instructing the male driver to raise his hands.

Notably, the affected SUV did not belong to the President. Secret Service personnel escorted President Biden to his vehicle, where First Lady Jill Biden was already present.

Earlier in the evening, the Bidens had been at the President’s 2024 campaign headquarters, engaging with staffers during a holiday happy hour. This visit marked the first time President Biden had been to the Wilmington office since staffers began working there over the summer. Despite the unexpected incident, both the President and First Lady departed the scene without further complications.
