(FixThisNation.com) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) was in a car accident on Tuesday while in Tennessee according to Press Secretary Bryan Griffin.
In a statement to Fox News, Griffin revealed that DeSantis, who is one of the 2024 Republican presidential candidates, was in a car accident in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The accident had not resulted in any injuries for him or his team. He then added that they appreciated all of the prayers and wishes sent from people across the nation for DeSantis.
The Chattanooga Police Department revealed to Fox News through a spokesperson that the crash took place in the early morning, at close to 8:15 a.m. on Interstate 75 South. It was caused after the four-car motorcade used by DeSantis attempted to slow down in order to not get stuck in the traffic that was in front of them. As a result, a pile-up was caused.
The accident led to one female staff member sustaining some minor injuries, and she was treated at a campaign event. The spokesperson further revealed that there was an investigation into the incident.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation SmartWay Cameras captured police and first responders who arrived at the scene.
One day earlier Fox News had put out a report that top officials in DeSantis’ presidential campaign were informing campaign donors that they were resetting the campaign. The officials also acknowledged that they were spending the majority of their time in the last two months with bundlers and campaign contributors.
They added that the presidential campaign was going to have many changes as DeSantis is hoping to rebound from the lackluster start of his 2024 campaign.
