Two Miami motorcycle sergeants were injured Wednesday night 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 crash caused a massive tie-up in the area well into the night.
At the time of the accident, the presidents motorcade was leaving Miami Beach, where he had attended an early evening fundraiser.
According to investigators, an abandoned car on the shoulder may have contributed to the crash. Sgt. Rufus Devane, III, 42, a 19-year veteran, and Sgt. Santiago Cruz, 49, a 22-year veteran, were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospitals Ryder Trauma Center.
Both were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, which are being evaluated, Miami police spokeswoman Kenia Reyes said Thursday morning.
Obama's motorcade was returning to Miami's international airport after two Democratic fundraisers the president held Wednesday evening in Miami Beach. Obama's itinerary wasn't affected. Obama left Miami on a return flight to Washington ahead of schedule.
The White House and U.S. Secret Service had no immediate comment.
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, where Obama was traveling for a campaign stop.
