(WTAE) PITTSBURGH —A heavy amount of police activity is continuing near the FBI building on the South Side after authorities said the driver of a dump truck intentionally crashed his vehicle through the front gate Tuesday morning.
FBI Supervisory Special Agent Greg Heeb said the large vehicle briefly went airborne after impact before it came to rest in an employee parking lot outside the building on East Carson Street.
"He was apparently driving erratically in the area. He ran a couple of red lights, possibly a stop sign," Heeb said. "Pittsburgh police attempted to initiate a traffic stop. He failed to stop immediately. They pulled him over eventually, close to our building. There was a brief exchange with the officer. He indicated to the officer that he was intending to ram the gate. He did just that -- put his truck back into gear, took off and went through the gate here at our headquarters."
