According to the New York Post, that driver was Jessica R. Ford, 35, of La Vergne, Tenn.

From the Post: Ford, who has had previous run-ins with law enforcement near the White House, was holding a pistol while she was behind the wheel, according to a Metropolitan Police Department report cited by WTTG-TV.
