Truck crashes through Pittsburgh FBI gate after police stop


PITTSBURGH (AP) — A dump truck driver from Ohio has crashed his vehicle through the security gate of the FBI’s offices in Pittsburgh, injuring himself but no one else.

Special Agent Gregory Heeb says the incident happened about 11 a.m. Tuesday after the truck was driving erratically and running stop signs or red lights and stopped by Pittsburgh police. Heeb says the stopped driver told police he wanted to ram the gate and then sped away and did so.

The truck was disabled by security barriers that are meant to prevent vehicles from driving into the office complex on the city’s South Side.

FBI agents checked the truck for bombs and found nothing.

Heeb says the FBI is working with police to determine charges. The man’s name wasn’t immediately released.
