Simić told Serbia's public broadcaster RTS late on Monday in Belgrade "running into the motorcade that was accompanying the president is a serious thing".
He also called on reporters to refrain from sensationalism as various information appeared on the occasion.
He said that the official, who is mentioned as the perpetrator in incident, "knows what it means to cut through a motorcade".
“Since the driver is a member of the service that I am in charge with, I will assume responsibility if needed,” Simić said.
RTS unofficially learned that the driver stated that he reached the motorcade, but did not try to pass it, so he drove behind and later went off the highway.
On the occasion of the incident, which took place on the Belgrade-Niš highway on Friday afternoon, the his office said that President Tomislav Nikolić expressed his full trust in members of the Serbian Interior Ministry who take care of his security.
