Vice President Mike Pence was involved in a traffic accident Thursday when the Trump campaign bus he was traveling in was involved in 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 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.”

Roughly 15 minutes after the first crash, two police officers escorting the bus on motorcycles were involved in another accident in which the bikes went down, according to the New York Post.

Journalists reported seeing Pence getting out of the limousine and talking to one of the officers following the second incident.

“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.

The vice president was on the way to the Greensburg Police Department for a “Cops for Trump” event when the accidents occurred, KDKA-TV reported.

He was also scheduled to tour the Guy Chemical Company in Somerset.

      solange Silverman – Would much rather read a story where Vice-President Pence and everyone else including cops were not injured in any way. Much, much better than reading of the insanity, the destruction of cities, statues and injuries to police, don’t you agree?

    Well, I am glad he is ok, & hope the cops are too! I take it they are, as nothing was mentioned of them being seriously injured nor taken to any hospital.

    I’d say that two accidents in one day is not good. I’m glad that there were no fatalities but the VP needs to be very careful. This is not a time to be careless.
