A car slammed into President Biden’s parked motorcade on Sunday while the president was attending a campaign event in Wilmington, Delaware.
Footage captured the moment the vehicle slammed into a parked SUV that had closed down a street while Biden attended the event. Secret Service agents had their weapons drawn and could be heard telling the driver to open the door.
The president and first lady had just emerged from the Biden-Harris 2024 headquarters in downtown Wilmington just after 8 p.m. on Sunday. A stunned president Biden could be seen looking on as agents apprehended the driver.
As First Lady Jill Biden was speaking with reporters, a loud bang could be heard as a silver Sedan collided with the SUV. Agents soon drew their weapons and surrounded the vehicle, instructing the driver to get his hands up.
The driver, a black man, could be seen speaking with agents while additional security personnel shuffled journalists away from the scene, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
