A California Highway Patrol agent was injured when his motorcycle was involved in a crash while accompanying the motorcade of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, authorities said.
The agent’s motorcycle collided with a vehicle on Friday in Simi Valley, according to Steve Swindle, spokesman for the Ventura County Fire Department.
Trudeau was not injured, a Canadian government source told LA News Watch.
The agent and a person on board the vehicle were taken to the hospital with injuries that are not risky.
“The agent was thrown from the motorcycle, the vehicle involved in the crash was not part of the caravan,” said Simi Valley Police Sgt. Chris Johnson.
The clash occurred while the caravan left the Ronald Reagan Library, where Trudeau gave a speech on friendship and society between the United States and Canada.
Trudeau makes a trip of three days to the United States to discuss the economic and political nexuses between both countries.
