Police investigators pulled an apparent Nazi flag from a U-Haul truck that crashed into a barrier near the White House Monday night. Eyewitnesses say the truck was driven twice into a barrier before stopping. The incident took place at the north side of Lafayette Park at 16th and H St, NW. Police laid out the flag on the sidewalk near the truck, apparently for the media to film, before folding it up and taking it away.

The driver was detained by Secret Service officers. There were no reported injuries. Several nearby buildings, including two hotels–the Hay Adams and Sofitel–were evacuated as a precaution. A robot was sent to inspect the truck for explosives.
A photo of the flag was posted by WUSA-TV reporter Troy Pope.
