A car has rammed into a parked SUV that was shielding President Joe Biden’s motorcade while the president and first lady Jill Biden were exiting his campaign headquarters in Wilmington Sunday night.

Neither the president nor the first lady was injured in the accident which is yet to be ascertained as a deliberate attack or an accident.

The security breach happened just after 8 p.m. when Biden and the first lady were leaving the Biden-Harris 2024 headquarters.

The car was a silver copper sedan with Delaware plates.

Agents quickly cornered the sedan and pulled their weapons on the driver, who held up his hands while the press was escorted back to their van.

Biden was ushered into his vehicle and the motorcade left the scene at 8:09 p.m. and arrived back at Biden’s residence eleven minutes later.

No other details were immediately available as the Secret Service did not respond to a request for comment.
