Vice President Mike Pence was involved in a traffic accident Thursday when the Trump campaign bus he was traveling on got into a minor crash.
Pence was on the way to Greensburg, Pennsylvania, when the accident occurred, according to KDKA-TV.
Journalists reported that the vice president was uninjured.
The motorcade reportedly came to a standstill around 11 a.m. Thursday morning. There doesn’t appear to be much damage to the bus as the motorcade went by.
There is also what reportedly appears to be an accident involving two motorbike escorts.
Journalists saw two bikes on the ground and the vice president talking to one of the bikers.
“The accident happened on a sharp curve along a narrow stretch of road in Allegheny County, and a reporter traveling with Pence reported seeing a dump truck with a scraped-up fender,” The Hill reported.

An anonymous official described the incident to The Hill as a “minor fender bender.”
“VP has transferred to a limo while authorities work out issues with dump truck driver whose driver’s side fender was swiped by the bus,” pool reporter Elizabeth Crisp of Newsweek tweeted.
I personally saw the driver of the truck get out and yell in the middle of the street before moving a nearby parking lot to talk to authorities. He was NOT happy.

“Grateful for all of the law enforcement officers who support us and help get us safely to where we are going each day. Thank you for all you do!” Pence tweeted later Thursday.
