A car smashed into a barricade at the U.S. Capitol building Friday morning, police said.
The Nissan Altima, which had Florida plates, hit a security gate at Independence Avenue and New Jersey Avenue Northwest.

The car did not make it through the secure perimeter that guards the actual Capitol building, police said.
