WaPo report on what happened at the White House:
UPDATE 15B.J. Campbell, 69, and his wife Susan of Oregon, who were touring Washington, said they saw a black Infiniti driven by a woman near the security checkpoint at 15th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW heading west on Pennsylvania Avenue. She went about 20 yards before rapidly turning the car around at the concrete security barriers.
“The Secret Service guy was just having a cow,” B.J. said. “Yelling at her and banging on the car.”
The Secret Service guys pulled a black metal gate into her path and she slowed to try to go around it, they said. But the agent moved the gate in front of her again. At that point “she just gunned it,” B.J. said. “She ran the barricade down and the guy; knocked him up onto her hood. He rolled off into the street and she tore off down Pennsylvania Avenue.”
The whole thing lasted about 20 seconds, they said.
