Bad Luck Biden: V.P.'s Escort Involved in Another Crash - NBC New York

Read original...

Don't ask Vice President Joe Biden about New York traffic.

For the second time in less than a year, a part of the vice president's motorcade was involved in a fender bender. Two NYPD motorcycle units helping escort the veep were involved in a minor accident in Queens, police said Thursday.

The officers suffered minor injuries and are being treated at Elmhurst Hospital

The VP continued on his way.

Last November, two advance vehicles -- paving the way for Biden to appear on The Daily Show -- were driving on 49th Street and 10th Avenue when they slammed into a livery cab. Four people -- two NYPD officers and two civilians -- were injured.

The cars apparently had lights and sirens on at the time, officials said.
