Authorities say two motorcycles have collided while escorting first lady Michelle Obama from a campaign stop in central Ohio, injuring a police officer and a state trooper.

The State Highway Patrol says the motorcycles somehow sideswiped each other late Monday afternoon east of Delaware as the motorcade headed to an airport.
