Woman with child drives onto active runway at Phoenix airport

A woman driving with a small child in her car rammed through a gate at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and drove onto an active runway Thursday night, authorities said.

Sgt. Trent Crump of the Phoenix Police Department said the woman made it onto the runway around 10 p.m. and was stopped within a couple of minutes by police officers.

The driver, who may have been impaired, was subsequently detained, Crump said in a news release. The woman and the child were not injured.

Airport operations were disrupted for about 15 minutes, but no inbound or outbound flights were put in danger as a result of the incident, according to Crump.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
