A campaign staffer for presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump was involved in a car accident on Monday as Trump made his way to Cleveland for the Republican National Convention.
Though early reports indicated the staffer's car was part of Trump's motorcade, the Secret Service tweeted that the car involved in the accident was not in the official motorcade procession.
FACT CHECK: Media report re Trump motorcade accident. Vehicles involved were operated by campaign staff and NOT part of motorcade.
