Car Drives Straight into White House Perimeter Gate, Resulting in Deadly Crash

Share

A vehicle smashed into an outer perimeter gate near the White House late Saturday.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Fox News.

At the time of the incident, President Joe Biden was in Delaware for the weekend.

The identity of the man driving the vehicle was not released. The incident took place shortly before 10:30 p.m., the Secret Service said in a statement, according to The Associated Press.

The Secret Service statement on the social media platform X said the driver was traveling at a high rate of speed when the vehicle hit an outer security perimeter barrier.

“There was no threat to the White House,” Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said, and “no threat or public safety implications.”

D.C. police said the incident is considered “only as a traffic crash” at this time, according to The Washington Post.

The Metropolitan Police Department said the crash took place at the intersection of 15th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW.

The Post reported the location is about 1,000 feet from the White House itself.

“Security protocols were implemented as officers cleared the vehicle and attempted to render aid to the driver who was discovered deceased,” the Secret Service said, according to Fox.

The Secret Service and police will continue to investigate the incident.

In January, a non-fatal accident took place in which a vehicle collided with the White House gate at the same location, according to CBS.

Biden was not at the White House at the time of that accident.

At the time of the incident, police and the Secret Service did not indicate if charges would be filed against the driver, according to The New York Times.

According to the CBS report, the man driving the car —  silver or gray Cadillac Escalade with Virginia plates — appeared to have “mental health challenges.”


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor

The Western Journal
