Vehicle crashes through North Carolina airport terminal after driving through fence onto tarmac

Video of the incident showed the vehicle severely damaged, with the windshield shattered. Doors at Wilmington International Airport could also be seen smashed.

A man was arrested after crashing a vehicle into a terminal at North Carolina's Wilmington International Airport on Thursday night after driving through a fence and onto the airport's tarmac, authorities said. 

The vehicle breached the fence and drove onto the tarmac at around 7 p.m. ET, the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office said. It then "retreated from the tarmac" and deputies with the sheriff's office were able to engage with the driver, according to a statement from the agency.

The vehicle "ultimately ended up inside the terminal" after crashing through doors and windows, the sheriff's office said in the statement. It was not clear what exactly led up to the driver smashing into the terminal.

The driver, Tray Anthony Dvorak, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a government official, speeding to elude arrest, trespassing on airport property, disorderly conduct and resisting a government official, according to the statement. It was not clear Friday if he had an attorney.

Video showed the front of the vehicle severely damaged and doors at the airport could also be seen smashed.

No one was injured during the incident, authorities said.
