BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A State Police Suburban carrying Governor Bobby Jindal was involved in a car accident Sunday afternoon. Governor Jindal was not injured.

The crash happened on Nicholson Drive near Oklahoma Street around 5:00 PM, according to the Louisiana State Police.

A "box" rental truck allegedly made an illegal U-turn in front of two unmarked  State Police vehicles, Captain Doug Cain said. Governor Jindal was inside the first SUV which was sideswiped by the truck, according to Cain. The second SUV then hit a utility pole.   

The Trooper in the second SUV received minor injuries, Cain added. There were no other injuries in the crash.

Investigators say the driver of the truck was cited for Improper Turn. 

The Governor's Office released the following statement:

"The Governor was involved in a traffic accident this afternoon on the way home from his son's soccer game after a truck made an illegal u-turn in front of his vehicle. The Governor did not sustain any injuries, and he is thankful for the work of the Louisiana State Police who keep him and his family safe every day."
