Biden Escort Involved in Wreck

By ABQNews Staff

A Bernalillo County Sheriff's deputy escorting Vice President Joe Biden's motorcade was hit this afternoon at Gibson and Carlisle.

Police say a woman drove around two police units blocking the intersection and hit a car driven by a sergeant with BCSO.

No injuries or arrests have been reported, but the sergeant has been taken to Presbyterian Hospital for evaluation.

A sheriff's spokeswoman would not say whether the vice president had already gone through the area at the time of the accident.

Motorcades Often Dangerous in ABQ Area

In Aug. 2007, a Rio Rancho motorcycle officer who was part of President Bush's motorcade died after a crash near I-25 at Sunport. Another officer was injured during a motorcade in Feb. 2006: Motorcycle Cop Hurt Escorting Bush Motorcade

Biden's motorcade was involved in another accident last week.

Biden was in Albuquerque for a $1,000-a-plate luncheon for for first-term Democratic Reps. Martin Heinrich and Harry Teague at Albuquerque's Hotel Andaluz.
