Police officers accompanying President Donald Trump’s convoy have been involved in an accident, US Secret Service has said.
The Secret Service confirmed that four motorcycle police officers crashed as the President's motorcade departed Chennault International Airport in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
However, Trump's armored limousine was not affected.
White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders said three of the four officers were taken to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries and are in stable condition.
The injured officers were from the Westlake Police Department, Sulfur Police Department and the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Motorcycle escorts stopped to deal with the accident, and some of them returned later to the motorcade, Reuters reported.
The accident did not impact the movement of Trump's motorcade, Secret Service spokesman Mason Brayman said.
The motorcade continued on to the Cameron LNG Export Terminal in Hackberry, where Trump toured the facility. Later, he gave a speech promoting U.S. energy policy.
