President Donald Trump’s motorcade was involved in a crash on his way to a speech in Louisiana, though the President is thought to be unhurt, according to MSNBC.

MSNBC’s Hans Nichols reported Tuesday afternoon that passersby saw overturned motorcycles and that the local parish reported minor injuries.

Reporters tweeted about the incident, noting three officers were injured. Details on how the crash occurred are uncertain.

Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs tweeted, “Trump’s vehicle is fine, but some officers who are part of his motorcade crashed. We could see at least a couple officers on ground and injured.”

In another tweet, she added, “I saw 3 officers down on Interstate 10 near Lake Charles as Trump motorcade headed to Hackberry.  One in grassy ditch, sitting up. One flat on his back on highway shoulder, bleeding. A third standing up, bleeding from his arm. Our whole side of highway was closed to traffic.”
