After the accident, Pence transferred to a limousine.
Two police officers on motorcycles escorting Pence’s transportation also got into an accident following the campaign bus crash, The Washington Times reported. Both officers in the accident were sent to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, according to a Pittsburg Bureau of Police Facebook post.
The accident involving the motorcycles happened around 11:40 a.m. and is being investigated, the Facebook post reported. The Pittsburg Bureau of Police also expressed gratitude to Pence for checking on the police officers injured.
“Pittsburgh Public Safety would like to thank Vice President Pence and members of the United States Secret Service for the concern and attention they showed the two injured officers,” the Facebook post read. “Vice President Pence stopped to tend to the officers personally; a gesture that was greatly appreciated by the officers themselves, and by the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police.”

“Grateful for all of the law enforcement officers who support and help get us safely to where we are going each day. Thank you for all you do!” Pence said.
