Donald Trump’s top campaign advisor said Monday that the Republican presidential candidate’s motorcade was involved in an accident in New York, but he was unharmed.

“What I’m hearing is that everybody’s fine,” campaign chairman Paul Manafort told CNN.

“Mr and Mrs Trump are on the plane and on the way here,” he said speaking from Cleveland. “I’m told nobody’s injured.”

The US Secret Service stated that the cars were not a part of the official motorcade.

The accident reportedly occurred as Trump and his wife, Melania, were on their way to the airport to fly to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where Trump is expected to officially accept the Republican nomination later this week.
