SOMERVELL COUNTY — Officials at the Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant have confirmed that someone crashed a vehicle into security barriers around the facility near Glen Rose early Saturday morning.

The facility reported the "unusual event" to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the property was locked down, according to a statement issued Saturday afternoon.

Luminant, the company that operates Comanche Peak, said the on-site security team used "appropriate security measures" and that a suspect was apprehended.

The company did not say whether the incident was accidental or intentional, nor did it specify what type of vehicle was involved. It was not made clear whether the suspect was injured.

What I heard, anecdotally, is that it was a drunk who hit the gates, then jumped out and ran (stumbled) downtown to David's and was arrested. Weird

Update: WFAA -

The Somervell County Sheriff's Office has now ruled out any kind of "plot" targeting the plant; they believe the driver — who was taken into custody — had been drinking.

Lumanant, the company that operates Comanche Peak, issued an "unusual event" alert to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission at 2:25 a.m. Saturday, about 30 minutes after the incident. The emergency alert was terminated at 3:10 a.m., according to documentation on the NRC Web site.
