WASHINGTON (DC News Now) — Police had part of Wisconsin Avenue in Northwest shut down Wednesday after someone ran into a security barrier at the U.S. Naval Observatory.

Chief of Communications for the United States Secret Service Anthony Guglielmi tweeted about the incident at 12:23 p.m.

In the tweet, he said that road closures were in effect in the 2400 block of Wisconsin Ave. NW after a vehicle “collided” with the barrier. He said Metropolitan Police Department and the U.S. Secret Service’s Uniformed Division were there and “evaluating.”

Several businesses had to shut down as a result of the situation. The people there said they were kept in the dark and that they were forced to close from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Shortly before 1:30 p.m., traffic was moving on Wisconsin Avenue NW again.

At 1:27 p.m., Guglielmi tweeted that the car had been cleared and didn’t pose a public safety risk. He thanked MPD for its support and help, adding that no one was hurt and that the Secret Service’s investigation still was taking place.

A truck took away a silver Mazda which appeared to have little damage.

The U.S. Naval Observatory is where the residence of Vice President Kamala Harris is located.

Harris was not at home at the time of the incident. In fact, she wasn’t in Washington. Instead, she was in Buffalo, N.Y.
