Woman with child drives on Phoenix airport runway

PHOENIX — A woman driving with a small child in her car crashed through a gate at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and drove onto the runway — the latest in a series of similar incidents across the country that have raised questions on whether US airports are secure.

The woman rammed the partially open airport gate about 10 p.m. Thursday and started crossing the runway, police spokesman Sergeant Trent Crump said. Police forced the car to stop in a few minutes and held the driver.
