Two juveniles were injured Monday after crashing a stolen car into a concrete security barrier near the White House, the U.S. Secret Service said.
A Secret Service spokesperson tells News4 that officers tried to pull over the car about 6:30 p.m., but the driver took off.
The car slammed into a concrete barrier and a telephone pole at 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW, officials said.
Video shows a silver sedan partly crumpled in the front across the street from a Secret Service guard post, plus a concrete barrier pushed into the road.
