Two hurt as Joe Biden’s motorcade crashes

By Allan Dowd Mon Feb 15

VANCOUVER (Reuters) – Two people, including former gold medal skater Peggy Fleming, received minor injuries on Sunday when Vice President Joseph Biden’s motorcade was involved in a crash at the Vancouver Olympics, officials said.

Biden’s limousine was not involved in the three-vehicle collision and the vice president continued without incident to watch the U.S. women’s ice hockey team defeat China, Canadian police and the White House said.

"Neither the vice president nor anyone else in his party was involved in the incident," Biden’s spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement.

The cause of the accident involving three vehicles at the rear of the motorcade had not yet been determined, but may have been the result of slick road conditions, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Fleming, who won gold at the 1968 Games, and Vonetta Flowers, a member of the gold medal-winning U.S. women’s bobsleigh team in 2002, were taken to hospital to be checked out but quickly released, the White House said.

Biden, Fleming and Flowers are all part of the U.S. Olympic delegation attending the Vancouver Games.

Not even Peggy Fleming is safe around Joe Biden. Disaster and ruin follow in the wake of this man everywhere he goes.

Lest we forget, there was a stretch back in November 2009 when Mr. Biden’s motorcade was involved in three accidents in a span of one week.

One occurred when an unmarked police car escorting the Vice President to a taping of ‘The Daily Show’ in Manhattan collided with a livery cab.

That followed an accident in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where Mr. Biden was in town as the keynote speaker at a $1000 a plate fundraiser dinner for local politicians. In that accident, a sheriff’s vehicle traveling in Biden’s motorcade collided with another vehicle.

Unfortunately, the first of Mr. Biden’s string of accidents was much more serious. In that one, a pedestrian was killed after being struck by two Secret Service-driven vehicles from Biden’s security detail.

Funny that the Associated Press would not remember any of this.

But if you are a Joe Biden fan, it’s probably a good idea to have a bad memory.

    For heavens sake people, get Joe out from behind the wheel!
    There are laws about who can drive a car and allowing a child to sit on your lap and try to drive is clearly illegal.
    Let Joe do something he’s good at…., wait a minute, what is he good at?

    ….”what is he good at?…..”

    Well, so far as I can tell, the only thing he’s really good at is being, what else, ………Joe Biden.

    Everything he’s involved in winds up looking like a bad accident.

    we can only hope

  4. Right of the People says:

    Joe is guilty of DWS (Driving While Stupid) every time he takes the wheel.

  5. GetBackJack says:

    Ah … it’s as I suspected.

    Joe Biden is an apocalyptic radiating crater of Dumb-ness.

    Even highly trained experts can no longer properly handle their driving tasks when in the presence of Joe Biden.

    Must be like the ancient Talmud scholars said of the physical site of the Tower of Babel, Do Not Go There, For Anyone Who But Passes By Experiences Total Memory Loss.

    Flemings & other fromer medal winners said they were in a big van and hurt their necks bad. I guess that’s the one towards the back. Lucky for the the social security were in their van, and Biden’s traveling doctor gave aid, prior to taking them to the hospital. Surely, the VP has auto insurance to cover their health care bills.
