“Shortly before 10:30 p.m., “A vehicle traveling at high speed collided with an exterior perimeter gate of the White House complex.”the service reported in a statement on the social media platform X, adding that there was “no threat” to the White House itself.

The agents who arrived at the scene “tried to help the driver who was discovered deceased”says the statement.

The Secret Service, along with the District of Columbia Police and Fire Department, launched an investigation into the fatal accident, said Anthony Guglielmi, spokesman for the Secret Service, in charge of White House security.

Guglielmi added that “there was no threat or implications for public safety”.

In January 2024, authorities arrested another person who also crashed a vehicle into the exterior gate of the complex.

The White House has seen a series of high-profile intrusion incidents in recent years, prompting the construction, in 2020, of a taller, stronger metal fence around the perimeter of the iconic mansion.
