PHOENIX (AP) -

Police say 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 Thursday night.

Sgt. Trent Crump said the woman rammed an airport gate around 10 p.m. and started crossing the runway. Police officers forced the car to stop after a few minutes and detained the driver.

Crump says neither driver nor the child were injured. He said the woman exhibited signs of impairment but did not elaborate.

Officials said airport operations were stopped for about 15 minutes because of the incident.

Sky Harbor communications departments declined to release any details, saying only that all operations returned to normal shortly after a "security incident."

Police also declined to release any more information.
