3 arrested for crashing car into Serb president’s motorcade – McClatchy Washington Bureau
Three people were arrested after their car crashed into the Serbian president’s motorcade, officials and media said Sunday.
President Aleksandar Vucic wasn’t injured in the crash, which happened Saturday morning in an area of Belgrade where he lives, the pro-government Politika daily reported Sunday.
The Serbian interior minister confirmed the accident, but said the crash initially did not appear as an attack against Vucic.
“Of course, we will investigate all the details,” Nebojsa Stefanovic told state Tanjug news agency.
Serbian media reports say a Bentley with Spanish license plates rammed into the car used by Vucic, and three Serbs in the Bentley are suspected of jeopardizing the president’s security. Media said the three suspects are known to police for former offenses.
