Bush's Protectors Give Him a Hands-On Tour

April 20, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

President Bush got behind the wheel of a sports car, put it in reverse and executed an escape maneuver during a tour of the Secret Service training center in Beltsville.

Under the watchful eyes of Secret Service experts, a spokesman said, Bush backed a 2002 Chevrolet Camaro down a practice track and spun 180 degrees at 40 mph. The car continued front-end-first in the same direction--an evasive maneuver known as the "J turn."

Bush also fired several guns during his visit to the unmarked, 493-acre complex outside Washington.
