Two Pittsburgh Police motorcycle officers with the Special Deployment Division were involved in a collision on Route 837 in White Oak, PA just before 11:40 a.m.

The officers were part of a security detail protecting Vice-President Mike Pence’s motorcade while the Vice-President was visiting the area. Both officers were treated in the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

The cause of the collision is being investigated. The crash comes after a separate minor collision involving a bus in the motorcade.

“Pittsburgh Public Safety would like to thank Vice-President Pence and members of the United States Secret Service for the concern and attention they showed the two injured officers,” police wrote in a statement. “Vice-President Pence stopped to tend to the officers personally; a gesture that was greatly appreciated by the officers themselves, and by the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police.”
