Sedan crashes into SUV traveling with president’s motorcade, authorities investigating if ‘impairment’ a factor

An SUV that was part of President Joe Biden’s motorcade was struck by another vehicle as Biden was walking out of a dinner on Sunday night, according to reporters traveling with the president.

Biden had just finished answering a reporter’s question when the crash occurred, appearing to startle the president. Secret Service agents then walked Biden to his waiting SUV. First lady Jill Biden was already in the vehicle, according to the press pool. The pair had just attended a dinner with staff at his campaign headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware.

Police are looking at whether impairment was a factor in the accident, according to a Wilmington, Delaware, Police spokesperson.

“The Wilmington Police Department is investigating the motor vehicle collision, which did not result in any injuries. Investigators are also working to determine if impairment was a factor,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
