Biden Motorcade in 3 Accidents in 3 Months

Monday, 15 Feb 2010 01:21 PM

Vice President Biden's motorcade has been involved in three accidents in three months, but the Secret Service tells Fox News it views the close string of collisions as "separate" and notes that Secret Service personnel were driving in only one of them.

One of the accidents left one person dead.

The latest mishap occurred Sunday in Vancouver when figure skating legend Peggy Fleming and another former Olympian suffered minor injuries when the van they were riding in as part of the motorcade apparently was rear-ended en route to a hockey game.

Biden was in a different vehicle at the time.

A doctor traveling with Biden reportedly checked the victims, and they were sent to the hospital as a precaution. They were later released.

Biden spokesman Jay Carney classified the incident as a "minor accident."
But it comes on top of a fatal accident on Nov. 11, when two Secret Service vehicles hit and killed a pedestrian on a Maryland parkway outside Washington.
