US Secretary of State John Kerry has been involved in a car crash in India during an official visit, but was not injured.

Kerry was travelling in a motorcade on the way to an airport in the city of Ahmedabad, when it happened.

Former presidential candidate was not hurt in the incident, according to reports. Two cars were damaged in what was described as a minor accident.

Kerry was in the state of Gujarat ahead of visit there by President Barack Obama, later this month.

Spokesman Jen Psaki said: "During the drive to the airport in Ahmedabad, India, two cars in the motorcade had a minor traffic accident resulting in some damage to both cars."
