A large rental truck sideswiped a sport utility vehicle carrying Gov. Bobby Jindal home from his son's soccer game in Baton Rouge, but the governor was not hurt, officials said Sunday.

A news release from Louisiana State Police sent Sunday night said a trooper driving a second SUV swerved to avoid the large rental truck and then hit a utility pole. The release said that trooper had minor injuries, but no one else was hurt in the wreck around 5 p.m. in Baton Rouge.

Police said the rental truck made an illegal U-turn from the outside lane and sideswiped the first SUV carrying the governor and another trooper. They were not hurt.

The governor has state police escorts around the clock, which is required under state law.

Jindal spokesman Sean Lansing said the governor had been on his way home from his son's soccer game.

The crash is under investigation. The driver of the truck was cited for making an improper turn, police said.
