Two Miami motorcycle officers were injured Wednesday night while taking part in the motorcade escorting President Barack Obama back to Miami International Airport.

The accident occurred before 9 p.m. where Interstate 95 meets State Road 836 near downtown Miami.

The accident caused a massive tie-up in the area well into the night.

Didn’t Obama have the balls to blame lack of progress on Congress not doing it’s job when all he’s done for the last eight years is campaign, golf and vacation?

Dade County worst drivers in the USA next to the ones in Chinatown NYC, and at least the Chinese have the excuse of no peripheral vision.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A motorcycle police officer who was part of President Obama’s motorcade to a campaign event in Florida died Sunday after being struck by a pickup truck.

Officer Bruce St. Laurent, 55, was a 20-year veteran of the Jupiter Police Department and one of several officers from agencies across Palm Beach County helping with security for the president’s visit.

Obama had a fundraiser to attend. That’s more important than the petty concerns of mere peasants.

Sounds like a good reason to call in sick whenever king hussein is coming to town. Not a good track record.

I'm betting the motorcade never stopped although it'll never be reported. Hillary's limo dragged a policeman about 25 feet while he was trying to stop the vehicle which disobeyed directions. He went to the hospital and the P.D received threatening phone calls within minutes about "comments" to the media. That was back during her POTUS campaign IIRC.

President Reagan had a MC escort involved in an accident and he got out along with some SS and rendered assistance until EMT arrived.

The Miami Police Department said Sgt. Rufus Devane III, 42, and Sgt. Santiago Cruz, 49, were traveling on Interstate 95 when they were involved in a crash while approaching an onramp. A preliminary investigation indicated an abandoned vehicle on the shoulder of the road may have contributed to the crash, though the investigation is not complete, police said.

This isn’t the first time Obama’s motorcade has been involved in an accident in Florida. In September 2012, Bruce St. Laurent of the Jupiter, Fla. police department was struck and killed by a pickup truck in West Palm Beach, Fla., where Obama was traveling for a campaign stop.

Surely obama-care has a special provision that any medical care necessitated by the actions of Owe-bama are paid by Owe-bama’s fund raising organization.

Unlike any other motorcycle accident, there’s no mention if the cops were wearing helmets. (You have to ride to understand).
