BREAKING: Secret Service releases statement after vehicle crashes into White House barrier - driver reported dead |  The Gateway expert
A man is dead after a car crashed into the White House security barrier on Saturday, May 4, 2024 (7News).

According to the Secret Service, a vehicle crashed into a White House barricade at high speed on Saturday evening, killing the driver.

A Secret Service investigation is underway, but there was no threat to the White House, a statement said. An investigation into the fatal crash “will be transferred to the Washington Metropolitan Police Department Crash Investigation Unit.”

It is still unclear what caused the car collision.

As The Gateway Pundit reported, another vehicle crashed into the White House gates in January. The driver was taken into custody.

US Secret Service Communications Director Andrew Guglielmo told the public that “there is no threat or impact to public safety.”
