The law enforcement officers in Donald Trump's motorcade were injured in a crash Tuesday while accompanying the president to an energy infrastructure event in Louisiana, ONAreports citing Politico.
“Today, three motorcycle officers from local law enforcement were injured in an accident while traveling with the President’s motorcade," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. "All three are being treated for injuries at a nearby hospital and are in stable condition.”
A reporter following the president's motorcade tweeted she saw "3 officers down on Interstate 10 near Lake Charles as Trump motorcade headed to Hackberry." She wrote she saw "One in grassy ditch, sitting up. One flat on his back on highway shoulder, bleeding. A third standing up, bleeding from his arm."
The president was not injured.
Trump was scheduled to tour parts of Louisiana and speak at Cameron LNG Export Facility regarding "America's energy infrastructure and strong economic growth," according to the White House.
