Car Hits Secret Service Vehicle Near Biden's Delaware Campaign Offices

When a sedan plowed into a Secret Service vehicle covering the president’s convoy as he was leaving his re-election campaign offices in downtown Wilmington, Del., on Sunday, President Biden was speaking with media.

According to the White House, neither Mr. Biden nor the first lady, Jill Biden, were wounded. They’d gone to an event at their campaign headquarters and had supper with campaign staff members.

Just after 8 p.m., a silver vehicle with Delaware license plates collided with a Secret Service sport utility vehicle that was blocking an intersection with access to the street Mr. Biden was visiting.

The Secret Service stated in a statement that “there was no protective interest associated with this event,” implying that the crash was unintentional and that the driver had no idea Mr. Biden was present.

“The president’s motorcade departed without incident,” according to the statement.

The collision caused no injuries, according to David Karas, a spokesperson for the Wilmington Police Department. “Investigators are also working to determine if impairment was a factor,” a statement from Mr. Karas stated.

According to reporters in the White House press pool, officers outside responded to the crash by surrounding the car and aiming firearms at the driver before the driver surrendered.

According to videos released online, the officials could be heard demanding that the motorist unlock his door. Photographers on the scene recorded Mr. Biden, who turned to look at the situation before being escorted into his vehicle.
