After the space was deemed safe and no injuries were discovered, the former Newark, N.J., mayor continued his speech and took questions from the audience.
“I have been a former mayor. We have dealt with a lot of crises. The key is to remain calm and see what you can do to help other people,” Booker told a local Florida news outlet of the incident.
The driver was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and the passenger had minor injuries, according to local reports.
“Unfortunately, we have traffic accidents often, and my prayers are with the two people. … It seems like they are going to be OK,” Booker said.
