Wilmington: A car crashed into a parked Secret Service SUV that was guarding U.S President Joe Biden's motorcade here on Sunday night while the president was leaving his campaign headquarters shortly after 8 p.m. The president and first lady Jill Biden were unharmed.

While Biden was walking from the campaign office to his waiting armoured SUV, a silver sedan hit a US Secret Service vehicle about 200 feet from where Biden was standing.

The sedan then tried to continue into a closed-off intersection, before Secret Service personnel surrounded the vehicle with weapons drawn and instructed the driver to put his hands up.

Biden was ushered into his waiting vehicle, where his wife was already seated, before being driven swiftly back to their home. His schedule was otherwise unaffected by the incident.

"There was no protective interest associated with this event and the president's motorcade departed without incident," Secret Service spokesperson Special Agent Steve Kopek said in a statement.

The Wilmington Police Department said in a statement it is "investigating the motor vehicle collision, which did not result in any injuries."

Video from Sunday evening showed Biden leaving his Wilmington campaign headquarters, where he and first lady Jill Biden had dinner with campaign staff. He stopped near his vehicle to answer a reporter's question.

A loud bang is heard and Biden looked around, startled, before Secret Service personnel ushered him into his waiting SUV. Four seconds passed between the sound of the crash and when the Secret Service ushered the president into the vehicle.
