Two motorcycle officers were involved in a crash along President Donald Trump’s motorcade route in Louisiana, according to reporters near the scene.

NBC News, citing pool reporters, says the officers were spotted with “very bloodied arms” following the incident.

Reuters reports:

Trump’s motorcade slowed down as it passed the site of the accident in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and reporters in a press car saw at least two officers on the ground and injured. Trump’s armored limousine was unaffected.

 The motorcycle escorts stopped to deal with the accident, and some of them returned later to the motorcade.

The accident occurred on Interstate 10 moments before the Trump motorcade crossed a bridge spanning Lake Charles.

Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Jacobs shared photos and other details regarding the incident:

President Trump will deliver remarks Tuesday afternoon an event at Cameron LNG Export Facility in Hackberry, Louisiana, about the economy and energy infrastructure.
