Gov. Mike Pence involved in car crash in Indianapolis

Pence not injured in crash

INDIANAPOLIS - Gov. Mike Pence was involved in a car crash Thursday morning shortly after leaving the Indiana Statehouse on his way to Fort Wayne.

No one was seriously injured in the crash, which happened at 10:40 a.m. at Pine and Vermont streets. The governor was not driving.

Investigators said a woman from Ohio struck the Chevrolet Tahoe that Pence, an Indiana State Police driver and one of Pence's staffers were in.

The woman was cited for disregarding a stop sign, and both vehicles had to be towed away.

Pence resumed his trip to Fort Wayne, where he arrived about 30 minutes late to sign a veterans tuition bill at Indiana-Purdue University Fort Wayne.

"We're very thankful that no one was seriously injured. After I was informed that everything was being addressed, and it did not appear that anyone was seriously injured, I was grateful to be able to continue our schedule north to Fort Wayne," Pence told reporters. "We thank God for his protection today for all concerned."
