Part of a motorcade escorting Vice President Joe Biden was involved in a minor accident Thursday while traveling in Queens, N.Y., WNBC-TV reported.
Two officers with the New York Police Department motorcycle unit sustained minor injuries during the incident and were undergoing treatment at a local hospital, according to the report.
Biden was not delayed by the accident, who met with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg earlier Thursday.
It was the third motorcade incident in less than a year for the Vice President. In November 2009, a police car traveling in his motorcade struck another car in Manhattan.
That same month, a vehicle in Biden's motorcade traveling in Albuquerque, N.M., was involved in an accident, sending one sheriff's deputy to the hospital.
