One person was detained late Saturday after the incident, and the vehicle was searched, CNN said. It is not immediately clear if there was any explosive device inside the car.
White House guards immediately increased security, while several streets in the vicinity were cordoned off.
Later in the day, the Secret Service said it detained the unnamed driver shortly after his vehicle approached the checkpoint, but made no mention of an explosive device, Reuters reported.
What appears to be a developing situation comes several days after a man scaled a perimeter fence, a vehicle gate, as well as another fence surrounding the White House, and walked around for sixteen minutes before being arrested by security.
