New Jersey Democratic Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Cory Booker had to deal with an unexpected guest while delivering a speech Sunday afternoon in Florida.
According to the Miami Herald, a van crashed into a building housing the campaign event.
According to the report, the vehicle crashed into the front of a cafe in Miami Gardens, Florida, briefly interrupting Booker’s speech and prompting some attendees to leave.
The driver was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and the passenger had minor injuries, according to local reports.
Local media also reported that the crash was likely an accident.
“I have been a former mayor. We have dealt with a lot of crises. The key is to remain calm and see what you can do to help other people,” Booker told a local Florida news outlet of the incident.
“Unfortunately, we have traffic accidents often, and my prayers are with the two people. … It seems like they are going to be OK,” Booker added.
