( – President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden were involved in an unexpected incident when a car collided with an SUV that was part of the president’s motorcade in downtown Wilmington, Delaware, on a recent Sunday night. The event took place shortly after the president and the first lady had attended a reception with campaign staff. This gathering was significant as it was held in Wilmington, the location of Biden’s campaign headquarters, underlining the city’s political importance to the president.

Exiting the event just after 8 p.m., President Biden took a moment to engage with the press. He was asked about his performance in the polls, particularly in comparison to former President Trump. Biden confidently dismissed concerns, suggesting that the media were concentrating on the wrong polls, hinting at a more positive outlook from his perspective.

In the midst of this brief interaction, an unexpected turn of events occurred. A sedan, identified by its Delaware license plates, crashed into an SUV that was stationed at an intersection across from the campaign headquarters. This incident happened just as the first lady had entered her vehicle, while President Biden was still outside, engaging with reporters.

The response from the Secret Service was swift and efficient. Agents immediately moved to secure the president, escorting him into his vehicle for safety. At the same time, they approached the sedan involved in the collision to assess the situation and manage any potential threats.

Despite the sudden and alarming nature of the incident, the presidential motorcade was able to leave the scene within a few minutes. This quick departure allowed the president and first lady to reach their Wilmington home by approximately 8:20 p.m., ensuring their safety following the unexpected disruption.

The incident attracted the attention of bystanders, one of whom was heard exclaiming “oh my gosh” in response to the startling crash. This event, while brief and without injury to the president or the first lady, highlights the constant vigilance and rapid response required by the Secret Service in ensuring the safety of the nation’s leader, especially in public and unpredictable environments.
