3 Injured in Motorcade Crash
A motorcade for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was involved in a crash on the evening of February 9. A California Highway Patrol officer and two others were injured.
The officer was leading the motorcade and attempted to stop a vehicle. The vehicle instead turned left and hit the officer’s motorcycle. The officer was thrown from the motorcycle and was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. A woman and child from the other vehicle were also taken to the hospital.
Before the crash occurred, Trudeau was in Simi Valley giving a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum. He was in the United States to discuss jobs and economic growth. His car was not involved in the crash.
