Secret Service Chief, Joseph Clancy, told Congress that reports of agents crashing a car into a barricade at the White House was exaggerated. "Previous reports of a crash are inaccurate - there was no crash," Joseph Clancy said during a hearing by a Senate Appropriations subcommittee. "The video shows the vehicle entering the White House complex at a speed of approximately 1 to 2 mph, and pushing aside a plastic barrel. There was no damage to the vehicle." Clancy told Congress earlier this week that he only learned about the incident on March 9, five days after it happened, and from an anonymous source. News accounts have said that the agents were drinking at a party beforehand.
