Photographers in the White House press corps experienced two dangerous moments on Saturday while covering President Barack Obama's speech at the Democratic National Committee's Winter Meeting.
Reporters ventured out to cover the speech amid a massive snowstorm in Washington that could dump up to three feet of snow on the region.
According to the White House pool report, as the motorcade drove back to the White House after the president's speech, a medium-size tree branch snapped under the weight of the snow and fell on top of an SUV carrying photographers.
The windshield of the vehicle was reportedly covered in snow and the driver brought it to a stop. The limb was dragged off the roof and the vehicle returned safely to the White House.
An ambulance skidded and crashed into the same SUV earlier in the day. The crash only caused minor damage and there were no injuries, according to the pool report.
