In 1936, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's private train was involved in an accident in Wilson, NC. According to the one reporter at the scene, a vehicle driven by A.T. Smith stalled on the tracks before the President's train arrived. With no warning available, the President's train collided with Smith's car at approximately 11:45 p.m. The Secret Service investigated, and the Presidential train resumed its journey to Washington, D.C. The White House didn't mention the accident until being asked about it two days later.
