Washington: Two officials in US First Lady Michelle Obama`s motorcade were injured Tuesday after their motorcycles collided in Ohio State, officials said.

Michelle was heading to Port Columbus to fly to Cleveland after she had spoken at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware when the accident took place. The First Lady was not injured.

According to Columbus Dispatch, the motorcycles from the State Highway Patrol and the Genoa Township Police Department crashed into each other about 4 p.M., about two miles east of Delaware.
