Car Collides Into US President Joe Biden’s Motorcade

Earlier today, around 8:09 pm (0109 GMT), a vehicle from the Secret Service, responsible for securing the president’s motorcade route, was involved in a collision with another vehicle in Wilmington. A spokesperson for the Secret Service, Special Agent Steve Kopek, confirmed this incident.

Following a loud noise resulting from a sedan colliding with an SUV at an intersection approximately 130 feet (40 meters) away from President Biden, security staff quickly escorted him into a waiting vehicle. Subsequently, he was swiftly driven away from the downtown Wilmington area.

Fortunately, a White House official informed the news agency that both the president and the first lady are unharmed. For further details, inquiries were directed to the US Secret Service. The Secret Service has not provided an immediate comment on the incident.

It’s worth noting that last year, there was a situation where a small private plane mistakenly entered restricted airspace near President Biden’s vacation home in Delaware. This incident led to a brief evacuation of the president and the first lady. The Secret Service clarified that the plane was promptly escorted out of the restricted airspace after unintentionally entering a secured area.

During that incident, the White House assured that there was no threat to President Biden or his family, and precautionary measures were taken. Following a thorough assessment of the situation, President Biden and his wife, Jill, returned to their Rehoboth Beach home.

In terms of aviation regulations, pilots are required to check for flight restrictions along their route before taking off. However, accidental breaches of airspace, especially around temporarily restricted zones, are common.

To handle such situations, US military jets and Coast Guard helicopters are frequently deployed to intercept planes violating flight restrictions around the president. Intercepted planes are redirected to a nearby airfield where aircrews undergo interviews by law enforcement and may face potential criminal or civil penalties.
