Cory Booker’s Florida campaign event interrupted by van crash

WASHINGTON — A presidential campaign event for Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., In Miami Gardens, Fl. Was cut short on Sunday when a van crashed into the building where the event was being held.

The Miami Herald reported that a Ford Windstar crashed and wedged itself between two parked cars and a structural beam right outside Mo Space by Miami Soul Cafe.

Event organizers evacuated the building out of an abundance of caution, but everyone inside the building, including Booker, was unscathed. The car’s driver was taken into custody, and the passenger was hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries, according to Local 10 news.

Booker has received death threats from men in south Florida over the last several months; however, local police said that the crash was an accident.

Booker had stopped in Florida as part of his campaign through key swing states ahead of the Democratic primary. Florida had passed a referendum in November allowing many former felons the right to vote, but implementation of the referendum had stalled in the Republican-controlled legislature.

Booker carried on with his speech about voting rights, telling the audience, “A century later, what was going on in Florida before you all did this incredible…Statewide referendum, you literally had counties in this state where one out of every three African Americans could not vote because criminal justice wasn’t equal.”.
