May 14, 2019

LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — Authorities say several motorcycle escort officers crashed during President Donald Trump’s motorcade in Louisiana, but the motorcade itself was not involved.

The Secret Service says four officers were involved, and three of them were taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

Lake Charles police and the White House said in separate statements that three officers were involved.

Lake Charles police say two Calcasieu Parish sheriff’s deputies and a Sulphur police officer crashed on Interstate-210 eastbound over Broad Street in Lake Charles. Secret Service spokesman Mason Brayman says in an emailed statement that a Westlake police officer also was involved.

City police say they are investigating how the wreck occurred, with help from state police.
