A car carrying Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison’s security team flipped and rolled down an embankment Thursday, with four officers taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The state’s police said in a statement that their car overturned after an accident with another car while the prime minister was on the campaign trail in Tasmania ahead of May 21 elections.
Morrison cancelled his remaining stops of the day after the accident but he was not involved or injured in the crash, his office said.
The prime minister described the officers who protect him and his family as selfless, professional and incredibly generous.
Morrison’s office said all four officers were conscious when they were transferred from the crash site.
