The US military is investigating an incident involving a vehicle crashing at the Travis Air Force Base in Northern California after entering the base’s territory without authorization; the event is reportedly being treated as "an act of terrorism."

The Travis airbase issued a statement saying that the car ran through the main gates of the base and crashed on its territory, eventually bursting into flames.

The driver of the vehicle has died at the scene. No military personnel has been injured in the incident.

​According to CBS, citing the law enforcement sources, the vehicle was filled with propane tanks. The preliminary information suggests the driver deliberately set the car on fire. His name was identified, but not disclosed.
