A police motorcyclist in President Barack Obama's motorcade died Sunday in Florida following a serious highway accident, the top White House spokesman said.
The officer from the Jupiter, Florida, police department was transported to St. Mary's Medical Center in nearby West Palm Beach after being injured in the accident.
White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters Sunday night that the officer, whose name was not immediately released, had succumbed to injuries. Obama was notified of the death, according to Carney, who added that the president said his thoughts and prayers were with the officer's family.
The president did not see the accident from the bus on which he was traveling Sunday, according to Carney.
The crash happened ahead of the president's motorcade, though few other details were available beyond that no other vehicle from the motorcade was involved, said the White House spokesman.
