The Florida governor, who is running for the 2024 Republican nomination, was involved in an accident in Tennessee but is uninjured, his campaign press secretary said.
“This morning, the governor was in a car accident while traveling to an event in Chattanooga, Tennessee,” said Bryan Griffin.
“He and his team are uninjured.”
Police told local TV it happened when traffic slowed down and caused four cars in the motorcade to hit each other. They said one staff member had sustained a minor injury.
The governor’s representatives did not comment on the specifics, but said he was continuing to his scheduled event.
Mr DeSantis had been due to appear in central and eastern Tennessee on Tuesday.
