(Newser) – Two motorcycle officers riding in Michelle Obama's motorcade escort were injured in a crash yesterday in Ohio, WBNS-10TV reports. Obama, who had just spoken at a university, was not injured, and details of the crash weren't known. The first lady then went on to Today, where she sat down with Ryan Seacrest for an interview that aired this morning. "When he walks in the door, he's Barack and he's dad," she said of her husband. "I am always astounded when I read in the paper or I talk to some advisers and I find out what he's actually dealt with in any given day, but when we sit down to dinner, he lets that all go for that moment. He is there for me, he is there for Sasha and Malia, and he's there as a dad."
