The Secret Service says a police advance car working ahead of Vice President Joe Biden's motorcade was involved in a traffic accident Tuesday evening in New York.The car wasn't part of the motorcade and the vice president was unhurt. New York City police say two police officers and a livery cab driver were hospitalized with minor injuries.

Secret Service spokesman Darrin Blackford says the motorcade continued on its route.

In another accident involving the vice president this week, a sheriff's deputy was injured Monday in Albuquerque, N.M., when a woman drove around police vehicles blocking an intersection and collided with the deputy's car.

Biden had been in Albuquerque to speak at a campaign fundraiser for two New Mexico Democrats.
