Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officials reported Monday that a driver crashed a vehicle into the front gate of the agency’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. The suspect, whose motives have not yet been disclosed, was quickly arrested after the breach attempt.

Following Monday’s incident, FBI Atlanta released a statement, saying, “Today, a person rammed into FBI Atlanta’s front gate shortly after noon. He was not associated with this facility. Several of our special agents who were passing by apprehended the man after he exited his vehicle. His motives at this point are not known.”

FBI Atlanta explained that the suspect was transported to a local hospital for “evaluation” after Monday’s crash. The agency noted that it is considering state and federal charges against the suspect. Additionally, FBI Atlanta said there were no injuries caused by Monday’s incident.

“Agents and bomb techs checked the car as a precaution as a part of our standard operating procedure,” FBI Atlanta added. “We don’t have any further information at this time, as this is an ongoing investigation.”

A video provided by Fox News shows an orange SUV crashed into a wedge barrier located at the front gate of the FBI’s Atlanta headquarters. An armored FBI BearCat vehicle can be seen facing the orange SUV on the opposite side of the pop-up barrier.

The FBI told Fox News that the unidentified suspect was arrested by DeKalb County Police after crashing into the employee entrance. Atlanta News First reported that FBI officials said the gate allows employees to swipe their badges and pass through the perimeter fencing that surrounds the FBI facilities. FBI officials explained that the suspect tried to follow an authorized vehicle in front of them through the employee entrance, but the gate stopped the unauthorized vehicle from breaching the perimeter.

A picture posted on X, formerly Twitter, by The New York Post shows the aftermath of the vehicle crash.
