INDIANAPOLIS – Gov. Mike Pence came away uninjured from a car crash Thursday morning on the way to Fort Wayne for an event.
He was riding in a Chevrolet Tahoe being driven by an Indiana State Police trooper near an entrance ramp to Interstates 65 and 70 in Indianapolis.
"We were departing Indianapolis in our official vehicle, when a car entered the intersection as we were getting on the highway," Pence said. "We're just very thankful no one was seriously injured.
"It was an unexpected delay, but we thank God everyone involved was OK."
Authorities said the governor's vehicle was struck after another driver ran a stop sign. That person was cited for failing to stop and both vehicles were towed.
A press release said "once it was determined that no one involved required immediate medical attention, the governor proceeded to Ft. Wayne to continue his schedule for the rest of the day."
Initially the governor's office sent out a release with a headline saying Pence and others were injured. It was corrected a few minutes later.
