(AP Photo/Jay LaPrete)Ohio – Authorities say two motorcycles have collided while escorting first lady Michelle Obama from a campaign stop in central Ohio, injuring a police officer and a state trooper.

    The State Highway Patrol says the motorcycles somehow sideswiped each other late Monday afternoon east of Delaware as the motorcade headed to an airport.

    A state trooper and a Genoa Township police officer were hurt in the crash. They were hospitalized in Columbus in stable condition. The patrol says the police officer’s injuries were more serious than the trooper’s but weren’t life-threatening.

    Mrs. Obama wasn’t hurt, and her motorcade continued on its route. She had campaigned at nearby Ohio Wesleyan University and was headed to Cleveland for another event.

    No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

She is by far, the greatest first lady we have had in decades in terms of promoting solid values and personal responsibility. She has also been a champion of military families and doing more to help them when their husbands/wives are deployed overseas.
