Pelosi was attempting to cross SR-29 when his 2021 Porsche was struck by a 2014 Jeep traveling northbound on the road, according to a collision report from the California Highway Patrol, which does not identify any driver as being at fault in the ‘accident. Soldiers were called to the scene just before 10:30 p.m., according to the report.

No injuries were reported in the accident and the driver of the Jeep was not arrested, according to the report.

CNN has contacted Highway Patrol and the Napa County Sheriff’s Office for further details.

Bail was set at $5,000 according to the booking report, and records show Pelosi was released Sunday morning.

“The President will not comment on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast,” said a statement from Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill. CNN asked for an updated statement after the crash report was released.

The speaker was in Rhode Island on Sunday to talk at Brown University’s commencement ceremony.
