Monday, while riding in a motorcade, disaster-prone Democrat Kamala Harris was engaged in an automobile accident. It appears she cannot avoid confrontations, mishaps, and gaffes.
The collision was detailed by two persons familiar with the incident to The Washington Post, which was the first to report on the occurrence.
According to the reports, the one-car collision halted the vice presidential motorcade in the area of Foggy Bottom in Washington, D.C.
The driver of the SUV transporting Harris collided with the tunnel’s curb with sufficient force to inflict damage.
Ultimately, the SUV’s tire had to be changed.

Harris was later transferred to a different escort vehicle for passage to the White House.
In a statement to the Post, a spokesman for Harris acknowledged the accident and emphasized that the vice president was unharmed.
“The Vice President sustained no injuries and appreciates the quick response by her USSS detail to get her to the White House safely,” Kristen Allen wrote in an email.
A spokesperson for the Secret Service stated that Harris’ SUV driver “overcorrected,” causing the crash.
“During a protective movement Monday, a vehicle in a motorcade had a minor overcorrection and struck a curb,” Anthony Guglielmi said.
“The protectee was transferred to a secondary vehicle, and the motorcade continued to its destination. There were no injuries to anyone.”

A TikTok user uploaded video footage of the stalled motorcade that was allegedly transporting Harris, and other video went viral.
Tom Fitton, the President of Judicial Watch, raised a good question on Twitter when he asked if there was some sort of training problem with the Secret Service:
