Police: Biden Staffer ‘At Fault’ For Fender Bender With Texas Trump Caravan

San Marcos Police determined that a Friday afternoon road altercation involving a group of Trump supporters and the Joe Biden presidential campaign appears to be a Biden staffer’s fault.

The incident occurred after vehicles displaying “Trump 2020” and other Trump-Pence paraphernalia surrounded the Biden-Harris campaign bus between San Antonio and Austin, Texas on Friday. While corporate media and Democrats attempted to construe the event as an “ambush,” claiming that the Trump supporters wanted to attack the Biden caravan, local police concluded differently.

Travis County Democratic Party Chair Katie Naranjo and numerous other Democrats accused the Trump supporters of intimidating Biden supporters and even attacking their cars.

“They ran into a person’s car, yelling curse words and threats. Don’t let bullies win, vote,” Naranjo wrote.

The San Marcos Police Department, however, say the white SUV that appears to have started the fender-bender belonged to a Biden-Harris campaign staffer.

“The at-fault vehicle may be the white SUV and the victim appears to be the black truck,” a statement from SMPD reads.

“Calls to the driver of the white SUV have gone unanswered and SMPD has not been contacted by the driver of the black truck. Since SMPD has not spoken to either driver at this time, additional investigation would be required to fully ascertain who was at fault,” the statement continued.

The skirmish, which is currently under FBI investigation, occurred shortly after the Biden-Harris campaign bus started its journey through Texas on one of the state’s busiest highways, I-35. While the bus was scheduled to visit multiple locations to campaign for the Democratic presidential nominee and other Democrats around the state, many of the events were canceled, citing safety and aggression concerns after the campaign could not acquire police escorts.

“Rather than engage in productive conversation about the drastically different visions that Joe Biden and Donald Trump have for our country, Trump supporters in Texas instead decided to put our staff, surrogates, supporters, and others in harm’s way,” Texas Biden spokesman Tariq Thowfeek said in a statement.

“To the Texans who disrupted our events: We’ll see you on November 3rd,” he added.

“This aggressive, abusive conduct by his supporters results from Trump continuing to incite acts of intimidation and violence,” said U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett also concluded in a statement. “As Republican lawyers use Republican-dominated courts to diminish voting, this is only another, more outrageous form of voter suppression. Those who fear their party is about to lose Texas resort to such desperate tactics. We have to stand up to these bullies just as we seek to protect the right of every last Texan to vote out the Bully-in-Chief.”

President Donald Trump, however, denounced the widespread accusations, saying that his supporters “did nothing wrong.”

Trump had also posted in support of the impromptu caravan, writing “I LOVE TEXAS!”
