GREENSBURG, Pa. (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – Vice President Mike Pence was involved in a minor accident on Thursday morning while heading to a “Cops for Trump” campaign rally in Greensburg, PA, according to reports.
The bus was involved in a fender bender with a dump truck on Route 837 in White Oak right before 11:40 a.m., Pence was not injured.
According to Pittsburgh Police, two motorcycle officers were involved in the accident and were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the scene.
“Pittsburgh Public Safety would like to thank Vice-President Pence and members of the United States Secret Service for the concern and attention they showed the two injured officers,” the department said in a release.
“Vice-President Pence stopped to tend to the officers personally; a gesture that was greatly appreciated by the officers themselves, and by the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police.”
Pence then got into a limousine and the campaign resumed its journey to the rally.
The “Cops for Trump” rally is a ticketed event and is not endorsed by the City of Greensburg or the police department, but the rally was set up right next to the Greenburg Police Department’s building.
An announcement was made over the loud speaker asking people who were not wearing masks to do so before Pence took the stage.
It was a strong law and order from the Vice President to ran down a litany of violence and shooting in American cities.
“This has got to stop, we must restore law and order to the streets of our communities for every American of ever race and creed and color,” said Pence.
Pence attacked Democratic nominee Joe Biden saying “you won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.”
Pence also went after Biden’s energy police, claiming he will end fracking in Pennsylvania.
Pence said the Trump Administration stands for more American jobs, less taxes and less regulation.
Second Lady Karen Pence was in Pittsburgh on Wednesday with VA Secretary Robert Wilkie.
They visited the Veterans Healthcare facility in O’Hara Township, discussing veteran suicide prevention.
