COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – A motorcycle officer in Vice President Mike Pence’s motorcade crashed Saturday morning.
Officer Andrew Holland, who’s been with the department since 2009, is in serious but stable condition in the intensive care unit, the Colorado Springs Police Department said.
The crash happened on Highway 24 at Martin Luther King Jr. Bypass at about 7:45 a.m. as police and Secret Service were taking the Vice President to the airport for his flight out of Colorado Springs.
Pence tweeted that he “spoke to wife of injured Colorado Springs motorcycle officer. So relieved his injuries not life-threatening. Will keep him in our prayers.”
Pence was in Colorado, his first trip back since the election, to visit Focus on the Family and to tour military installations in the area, including Schriever Air Force Base, the National Space Defense Center, and the Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station.
It is unknown how or why Holland crashed, but no other vehicles are believed to have been involved.
