A vehicle crashed into an exterior gate of the White House complex in Washington shortly before 6 p.m. ET (0000 GMT) on Monday, the U.S. Secret Service said.
U.S. Secret Service Chief of Communications Anthony Guglielmi said a driver was taken into custody as “the cause and manner” of the incident is being investigated.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the incident.
A Delaware man was charged last month with drunk driving after he accidentally crashed his vehicle into U.S. President Joe Biden’s motorcade.
The U.S. Secret Service said “there was no protective interest associated with this event.”
