HACKBERRY, La. (KLFY) – Three injuries are reported in the crash of motorcycles that were part of President Donald Trump’s motorcade in Cameron Parish Tuesday afternoon.
It happened on Interstate 210.
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office released the following statement about the crash:
“Earlier this afternoon around 1:50 p.m. 3 motorcycles escorting the presidential motorcade crashed on I-210 westbound near mile marker 11. Those involved in the accident are two Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies and a Sulphur Police Department officer. All three were transported to the hospital by ambulance; 2 with what appear to be minor to moderate injuries and 1 CPSO deputy with serious injuries (he is in stable condition).”
The crash is still under investigation and it is unclear at this time what caused the crash.”
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.
