An Indianapolis Police officer injured in a crash while assisting President Donald Trump’s motorcade received a call from the Commander in Chief as he was receiving medical treatment.
The Indianapolis Police Department on Thursday tweeted a video of Officer Robert Turner fielding a call from Trump after he suffered a broken ankle and possible contusion from a motorcycle accident that happened as the president headed back to the airport.
“Yes sir,” Turner says while listening to Trump before breaking out in laughter. “I believe so, I’m not sure, I haven’t had the x-ray on it yet.”

Trump was in Indiana on Wednesday touting his tax plan at the State Fairgrounds before heading back to the Indianapolis International Airport. Turner was on I-70 westbound toward the airport when an accident took place.
The specific details surrounding Turner’s crash are unknown, but he is in “good condition” at the hospital, according to CNN reporter Steve Brusk.
Before Trump boarded Air Force One, he spoke with a group of officers on motorcycles and expressed concern for the injured officer, Washington Times reporter Stephen Miller said to media members.
Trump called Turner while he was in the air on his way back to Washington D.C.
This isn’t the first time an officer was injured due to an accident in Trump’s motorcade. Back in January, a vehicle assisting then-Vice President-elect Mike Pence hit a reserve officer in Washington D.C. The officer was on traffic control duty and suffered minor injuries from the accident.
