Capitol Hill on alert after motorist strikes police vehicle, barricade

A suspicious vehicle prompted the evacuation of several buildings on Capitol Hill today after a motorist struck a police vehicle and barricade in a seemingly intentional act.

After nearly four hours, U.S. Capitol Police said there is “no evidence to indicate any nexus to terrorism at this time” but a suspect faces several charges.

U.S. Capitol Police closed off several streets and detonated two controlled explosions to investigate whether the vehicle contained dangerous materials. At 3:30 p.m., police announced the vehicle was cleared “with negative results.”
