N.Y. police car crashes ahead of Biden

Bloomberg News
A New York Police Department car was involved in an accident Tuesday during Vice President Biden's visit to New York, according to the U.S. Secret Service. The police car was running ahead of Biden's motorcade, which wasn't affected by the incident, the agency said.

Vehicles linked to Biden have already been involved in two accidents in a week. Last Thursday, two armored Secret Service vehicles struck and killed a man as he was crossing Suitland Parkway in Prince George's County. Biden was in neither vehicle at the time.

And a Albuquerque motorist crashed into a Bernalillo County sheriff's car Monday while it was with Biden's motorcade in that New Mexico city, sending a sheriff's deputy to the hospital.

In Tuesday's incident, police said that three unmarked cars, moving with lights and sirens on, were five to 10 minutes ahead of Biden's motorcade when a livery cab crashed into the middle car around 5:40 p.m.

Three people were taken to a New York hospital with back and neck injuries, the New York Post reported.

The vice president was in New York to appear on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

Wonder if any of you 'journalists" will do a story on how Dumbo Biden crashed a members only golf club Sunday day while in Las Vegas.

This after his idiot boss Odumbo trashed the city and everyoe who goes there for business meetings. What shameless hypocrisy.
Had it been a Republican VP who did it we'd be seeing articles trashing the VP, the club, its membersip policies, and polling members about how irate they were.

It says a livery cab crashed into the cop car. If you know anything about NYC, you know that car service guys (livery cab drivers) are a menace. This has zero to do with the motorcade and everything to do with drivers who think they're special and can run stop signs and red lights. And honk constantly. They're a menace and a nuisance in one obnoxious, overpriced package.

This guy is a menace, he's like the horseman of the Apocalypse or something, bringing destruction and chaos everywhere he goes. Usually just verbal destruction and chaos, his intellectual capacity equal to that of a Mollusk. But I guess Biden the Magic Mollusk decided to step up his game a notch. I wouldn't be surprised the next time our Magic Mollusk V.P. is on television to hear him blurt out: "I am become death, destroyer of worlds."

I'm not so sure I buy him not being in that motorcade either. If he had been in it the news would be front page every paper, him turning some pedestrian into a skid mark. Even a Mollusk knows they dont need that grief. More than likely our beloved Mollusk was listening to Shaggy's "It wasn't me" when they rolled over dude." Splat! Biden: "It wasn't me!"

I'm waiting for the psycho nut cases to find this story and blame President Obama for the NY Cops car accident.

scrivener50: Take off the tin foil hat!

mwhoke: Motorcades for VIP politicians (like the VP and President) are for their safety, not just to dodge traffic, and do not come about through the politicians' desires to be "considered royalty" but rather through the demands of their security details.

Looks like the Biden drivers have been taking driving lessons from Joe Kennedy!

URGENT TO VP BIDEN (c/o Jay Carney): Drudge Report headline -- web site "embarrassment" -- the purposeful work of a cyber psy op intended to subvert the Obama-Biden administration? Consider asking Roslyn Mazer at Office of DNI to investigate. Also, please know this:

Politicians should get stuck in traffic just like normal folk.

But politicians do not want to be considered normal folk they want to be considered royality and treated as such.

It is time to start voting them out of office and maybe they will come down to earth!

It's safer for you to go stridin'
Than ride in the fleet of Joe Biden
The accident rate
Means his ship of state
Will be rechristened Poseidon.
