U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry emerged unscathed after his motorcade was involved in a minor car accident in India.

Kerry was riding in the first of two vehicles involved in the collision, which resulted in “some damage to both cars,” said State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

The SUV in which Kerry was traveling was rear-ended as it made its way through streets of the city of Ahmedabad, where Kerry had attended an international business conference.

Kerry suffered “no injuries nor did any staff or personnel,” Psaki said. “One vehicle was switched out and the motorcade proceeded to the airport without further incident.”
