(PHOENIX) –It was one car that created havoc at an Arizona airport when it crashed through a gate and onto an active runway Thursday night.

A woman driving with a small child in her 1997 Saturn rammed a north/east gate at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, gaining access to the active runway. Neither were injured, although the woman appeared to be showing signs of impairment.

Despite the driver’s actions, no flights were put in danger, but airport operations were suspended for a short period of time to ensure the safety of everyone on the runway.

The investigation into the incident is still ongoing.
