A U-Haul truck crashed near the White House Monday night, prompting investigation into a potential security breach, officials from the Secret Service reported.
The truck slammed into barriers on the north side of Lafayette Square, about a block away from the presidential residence, shortly before 10pm, according to Anthony Guglielmi, the chief of communications for the Secret Service.
“One man has been detained,” Guglielmi said.
Police later recovered a red Nazi flag from the crash site. Images and video of the flag have since circulated widely on social media.
While the Secret Service hasn’t confirmed the event as an intentional act, the presence of the flag raises questions about the motivations behind the crash.
