All About Kamala Harris’ Accident
Following Kamala Harris’ accident, Vice President Kamala was involved in a motorcade crash on Monday, initially reported to Secret Service leaders as a “mechanical failure,” an agency spokesman said Wednesday night.
According to Guglielmi, Radio traffic surrounding the incident initially indicated that a mechanical failure had occurred. By personnel supporting the motorcade, it was communicated to agency leaders.
He revealed that leadership was verbally updated with additional pertinent facts that the vehicle struck a curb after the protective movement was completed.
Harris was headed to work at the White House in her motorcade, confirmed by a source familiar with the incident. It was at that point when the vehicle she was riding in clipped a high curb with its back wheel and was disabled.
It’s been told that a stopped motorcade is considered a situation of concern, “a big no-no for us.” Apparently, vice president Kamala was quickly moved to the replacement vehicle.
Her previous vehicle had been crossing at a high rate of speed, estimated at up to 50 mph, on city streets. The medical office checked Harris out to make sure she was OK at the time the motorcade arrived at the White House.
Kirsten Allen, Harris’ press secretary, confirmed the incident Wednesday: “The Vice President sustained no injuries and appreciates the quick response by her USSS detail to get her to the White House safely.”
Surrounding the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol last year, the agency has been scrutinized for apparently having erased text messages.
Senior leaders at the Secret Service confiscated the cellphones of 24 agents to give to the watchdog after the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general launched a probe.
According to Guglielmi on Wednesday, after the motorcade incident, there would be no disciplinary action: “We are proud of the detail. How they handled this was exactly as they should.”
When asked about previous instances that have put the Secret Service in the headlines, Guglielmi replied: “This is not a misconduct issue at all.”
