According to reports, Pence’s campaign bus with police escort were heading towards a campaign stop in Greenburg, PA when it was involved in a minor accident with a dump truck around 11 a.m Eastern on Thursday.
Pence was uninjured in the incident and transferred to a limousine to get him to the campaign stop.
Once the motorcade restarted, however, there was a second accident. Journalists on the scene said two police motorcycle escorts crashed as Pence’s limousine headed out.
The vice president got out and made sure the police officers were okay, reports say, before departing for his event.
The two motorcycle cops were reportedly hospitalized for precautionary reasons, but their injuries are considered minor.
