Officials told TribLive.com that the trooper was taken to a local hospital, though the injuries aren’t thought to be life threatening. WTRF reported that the crash caused Biden to be 45 minutes late for a speech in Martins Ferry.

This isn’t the first time someone has been injured in a crash involving the vehicles that transport or protect Biden:

— In 2010, two former Olympians were injured in Vancouver while riding in a van that was rear-ended in Biden’s motorcade.

— In November 2009, a man was killed in Maryland after two Secret Service employees — driving vehicles that usually transport Biden — hit a motorist. Biden was not traveling with the vehicles at the time.

— Also that month, four people were injured in New York City after a security detail for Biden hit a livery cab.

— That same week in 2009, a sheriff’s deputy in New Mexico blocking an intersection for Biden’s motorcade was injured after being hit by a motorist.
