Uber Crashes Into Gates At Buckingham Palace In The Early Hours Of Sunday Morning.

A car crashed into the gate of Buckingham Palace in London, the residence of the Queen of England, on Saturday.

The incident took place a little before 12:30 a.m. local time, Sunday (7:30 p.m. EST, Saturday). Images of the aftermath of the incident show British police at the scene investigating the incident.

According to initial reports, the car in question appeared to be an Uber and the crash is being treated as an isolated vehicular accident. It is not being looked at as a deliberate act of violence or a terrorist attack.

"So scary. Loads of police here. Being told to move back by the police,” said Mathew Vincent, who witnessed the scene, the Mirror reported.

Police were stopping anyone trying to video the scene, looks like we could see another cover up of TfL stakeholder Uber. 

Last year, we saw an Uber driver mow down pedestrians on Exhibition Road. The story was killed in the press within hours.

It is not immediately known how many members of the royal family were present at the palace at the time of the attack. Also, it is yet to be determined if the police have apprehended the driver of the car.

Buckingham Palace has been the official home of the monarchy since 1837, according to Hello! magazine. Over the years it has gone through several renovations and currently includes 775 bedrooms, a chapel, a post office, a staff cafeteria, a doctor's office, a movie theater, an ATM, and a swimming pool. 

It was originally a three-story block house owned by John Sheffield, the Duke of Buckingham. At the time, it was called Buckingham house and was later bought by King George III as a gift for his wife, in 1761. 

This is the second time a car has driven into gates at Buckingham Palace. Volkswagen Sirocco smash through the gates in Jan 1995.
