Officials refused to offer any early details when questioned about the reason behind the driver's Saturday night collision with the barrier.

While investigating teams worked at the scene, a spokeswoman for the Secret Service reassured WTOP that there was no threat to the White House and that there were simply temporary traffic closures in the area. under a statement, US Secret Service Chief of Communications Anthony Guglielmi confirmed that security procedures had been followed and underlined that the White House was not under danger.

When a U-Haul smashed into the White House in May of last year, the driver, 19-year-old Sai Varshith Kandula, was first accused of trying to kill the president. However, although Nazi memorabilia was found at the location, the charges were subsequently subtly dropped.
