The Department of Homeland Security Inspector General is investigating an accident involving two Secret Service agents.

FOX News Radio's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington.

A couple of Secret Service agents reportedly drove a government car into a White House security barricade -- and they may have been drunk at the time.  

The "Washington Post" reports it happened after a party last week, and that one of the agents is Mark Connolly, the second-in-command on the President's security detail.  The paper names the other as George Ogilvie, a senior supervisor in the DC field office.

The incident is the latest in a series of embarrassing episodes for the Secret Service. Last fall, a knife-wielding fence jumper made it into the East Room of the White House.
