The Palmetto Expressway was shut down near Miami Lakes after a Pinecrest motorcycle police officer — who was part of Hillary Clinton’s motorcade — was involved in a crash Tuesday afternoon, according to Pinecrest police.
The accident happened after 4 p.m. near Northwest 67th Avenue and the Palmetto, shortly after Clinton spoke at a rally at Broward College.
The officer, who was not immediately identified, was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center. His condition was unknown. Traffic was shut down in both directions of the Palmetto due to the accident.
Florida Highway Patrol Spokesman Joe Sanchez said it appeared the officer hit a guardrail.
