A special agent for the FBI was checking a concussion grenade in the back of a car at the bureau’s headquarters in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday afternoon when the device accidentally detonated.

The agent sustained injuries to his hand when the device, which often is used by law enforcement during raids to disorient people, went off, the New York Times reports

The explosion, which occurred in an underground parking garage at 26 Federal Plaza, initially prompted fears of an act of terrorism.

It’s unclear what caused the device to detonate.

Before his car drifted across the road and crashed last week, former FBI Director Louis Freeh likely fell asleep and won’t be cited.

ABC News reports that Freeh can’t recall why his car crashed in Barnard, VT.

Investigators said they won’t know for sure what caused the accident, but evidence points to him falling asleep. Drugs and alcohol were not a factor, investigators said.

No brake or swerve marks were spotted on the road.

Freeh, 64, was seriously injured in the crash and was airlifted to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire.

The hospital declined to release his condition Wednesday.
