- Michelle Obama headed to Colorado on Friday for some skiing with her daughters for the fourth Presidents' Day weekend in a row
- On Sunday, their motorcade was allowed to sneak around the scene of a car accident even though the road was closed
- Instagram users also shared photos of their plane on the tarmac at Aspen
While President Obama flew to California for a few rounds of golf this weekend, his wife and daughters headed to Aspen for a secret trip - but it didn't stay secret for long.
The trio arrived in Colorado on Friday and would've stayed under the radar had it not been for a car crash and some eagle-eyed Instagrammers.
A police report from Sunday revealed that a motorcade carrying Michelle Obama and her girls was forced to stop when it came across a two car collision, the Aspen Daily News reported.
One driver, who was from South Africa, had mistakenly driven in the wrong lane and a second driver, who was blinded by sunshine, was unable to avoid him, according to the report.

They hit head-on at 30 mph just before 8am, but both drivers walked away without injuries.
The road was closed for around 40 minutes - but not for the Obamas.
The presidential motorcade arrived at the scene and authorities let them 'sneak through while they waited on tow trucks,' said Police Chief Brian Olson.
Pitkin County Sheriff's deputy Jesse Steindler told the paper that the rest of the trip went smoothly for the Obamas, who were joined by the Secret Service and a handful of local deputies.
'It was very uneventful,' Steindler said. 'It was very easy duty.'

Mrs Obama and her daughters Malia and Sasha, who have spent the three previous Presidents' Day weekends in Aspen, skied at Buttermilk on Saturday, he added.
He would not say where they stayed but in the past, they have spent the weekend at the home of Jim and Paula Crown, who own the Aspen Skiing Co.
The First Family were photographed after landing on Friday by Instagrammers, who shared images of her Air Force jet after it parked on the tarmac.
'As we were departing Aspen Michelle Obama and the girls were coming in to ski the weekend for President's Day,' one Instagram user, Keith Crews, wrote.
'Hoping to catch a lift home with #FLOTUS - but she's not answering my text,' another, Ken Fulk, wrote alongside a picture of the plane on Monday afternoon.
