British, Belgian Prime Ministers Unhurt In Motorcade Accident
British Prime Minister Theresa May and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel are uninjured after a Friday traffic accident involving their motorcade.
Two police motorcycles crashed into one another when an unauthorized car entered the convoy, an official said. Michel got out of his car to check on the condition of the officers before they were taken to an area hospital, Sky News reported.
A spokesman told Reuters May was farther up in the motorcade, and wouldn’t have seen the accident the moment it occurred.
The incident was described as an accident by Belgian media outlets and the driver of the vehicle is unknown, according to Business Insider. (RELATED: The American Legion Is Asking The Supreme Court To Protect A Cross-Shaped War Memorial)
“It was an inattentive driver,” a spokesman for Michel told Reuters, not mentioning any possibility of an attack.
At St Symphorien I had the honour of laying wreaths at the graves of John Parr and George Ellison, the first and last UK soldiers to die during the War. We remember every member of the Armed Forces who gave their lives to protect what we hold dear. We will never forget. pic.twitter.com/vuGPqJfzMU
