Vice President’s Car Crashes with a Cab

Share Article

Third auto accident in a week for Vice President Joe Biden's motorcade amazes even New York personal injury attorney David Perecman.

On November 17 a cab was hit by an unmarked New York police squad car clearing a path for the rest of the Vice President's motorcade. As reported in the New York Post, the livery driver accelerated past a NYPD stop point and into the intersection as Biden's advance cars - not considered part of his official motorcade - approached. New York personal injury attorneys noted that the advance cars had their lights and sirens on.

"Motorcade routes are selected by Secret Service agents several days before a domestic trip, but its events like these that show just how unpredictable life can be even when you make the most detailed plans," said New York personal injury attorney David Perecman.

This road accident involving the vice president's motorcade is the third in the past week. In another auto accident, attorneys noted that a sheriff's deputy was injured in New Mexico, when a woman drove around police vehicles blocking an intersection and collided with his car. Last Thursday, two armored Secret Service vehicles struck and killed a man as he was crossing a parkway in Maryland.
