BATON ROUGE- Governor Bobby Jindal was inside a black suburban this afternoon when a box truck pulled out in front of his SUV, and side swiped the suburban he was riding in. 

A State Trooper, part of the Governor's Security detail, was following behind the Governor in another black SUV and crashed into a utility pole on Nicholson Drive, according to State Police.

The crash happened just before 5:30pm at Nicholson Drive and Oklahoma Street.

State Police tell News 2 the Governor is doing fine and was not injured in the wreck.

The driver of the box truck was ticketed.

We will have much more on this breaking news story tonight at ten.
