The Secret Service also reports that the vehicle didn't breach the security barriers of the White House complex itself, but that traffic within the nearby vicinity would be affected as a result of a security shutdown.

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

According to tweets from the Secret Service, no shots were fired in the apprehension of the female driver.

At this time it remains unknown as to who the suspect may be but the Secret Service has stated that no law enforcement or security personnel were injured as a result of the crash.

There's no confirmation at this time as to whether this may be a failed act of domestic terrorism or a legitimate accident, but the likelihood of someone trying to ram a White House security barrier implies this may have been intentional.

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Fox News has also reported that the female driver was taken into custody, and shown images that appear to depict a white SUV as being responsible for the damages sustained to the security barrier.

One White House correspondent for CNBC tweeted that the White House is on lockdown as a result of the incident, and that the press doors are being blocked off by uniformed officers.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Secret Service tells me the security situation is elevated here at the White House.

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Eamon Javers of CNBC also reported seeing three uniformed Secret Service officers running towards the vehicle after the crash.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">&quot;This vehicle was not anywhere close to the White House itself,&quot; <a href="https://twitter.com/MajorCBS?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@MajorCBS</a> reports on car striking security barrier. &quot;Not close to the North Lawn of the White House.

Likely just another Liberal fanatic trying to get 15 mins of frame and do some speech circuit tours.

But can get about 5 years for this stunt.
