An officer was rushed to the hospital Monday after an incident involving first lady Melania Trump's motorcade in Huntersville, NC. The accident occurred just before 3:30pm ET Monday when the motorcycle officer with the Huntersville Police Department collided with another vehicle, police reported.


The unidentified officer was taken to a nearby hospital and his injuries were not life-threatening, according to the report.

Trump made a rare visit to North Carolina on Monday to campaign in support of her husband Donald Trump, but was not on the scene at the time of the accident. She spoke at a “Make America Great Again” event in the same city at 4pm ET at Magnolia Woods event center, off Statesville Road. Approximately 300 Trump supporters were in attendance.
