    Governor Bruce Rauner’s motorcade was involved in a four-vehicle crash in downtown Chicago Wednesday, according to Illinois State Police.

    Authorities said Illinois State Police Executive Protection Unit officers were completing a “routine movement of Governor Rauner” Wednesday morning when two vehicles crashed in the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Randolph Street directly in front of them.

    The governor’s motorcade was sitting at a red light at Randolph Street when the two vehicles crashed in the intersection, according to ISP Director Hiram Grau. One of the vehicles spun out of control, sliding across the intersection and striking the vehicle Rauner was in and another vehicle, he said in a release.

    Neither the governor nor any ISP officers were injured in the crash, Grau said. Three others involved in the accident were transported to Northwestern Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries for treatment.

    Chicago police responded to the scene, officials said.
