Ukraine's Zelensky involved in car accident, not seriously injured: spokesman

A motorist collided with a vehicle carrying Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky as his motorcade passed through Kyiv, though the president was not seriously injured in the accident, his spokesman said early Thursday morning.

"In Kyiv, a passenger car collided with the car of the President of Ukraine and escort vehicles," spokesman Sergiy Nikiforov said in a statement posted on Facebook at 1:22 am local time (22:22 GMT).

"Medics accompanying the President provided the driver of the passenger car with emergency aid and transferred him to an ambulance," he continued.
