Vice President Kamala Harris was involved in a minor car accident earlier this week, the Secret Service said Thursday, and the agency now says her vehicle struck a curb after initially reporting mechanical failure.
The incident occurred on Harris’ regular route to work. Her spokeswoman, Kirsten Allen, said the vice president has “an immense amount of gratitude” for her Secret Service detail.
“The Vice President sustained no injuries and appreciates the quick response by her USSS detail to get her to the White House safely,” Allen said.
“During a protective movement Monday, a vehicle in a motorcade had a minor overcorrection and struck a curb,” Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement on Thursday. “The protectee was transferred to a secondary vehicle and the motorcade continued to its destination. There were no injuries to anyone.”
