November 17, 2012: A US woman may have been unaware her infant son was in the car when she rammed her way onto a runway at Phoenix International Airport.

A US mother has allegedly crashed her car through an airport fence and driven onto a runway with her two-month-old son in the backseat.

Koko Nicole Anderson, 21, she smashed through the gates at Phoenix-Sky Harbor International Airport in Arizona yesterday, police said.

Sergeant Trent Crump said Anderson drove her car into the gates more than once to break through while they were slightly ajar during a routine test by airport security.

Police allegedly caught her as she was driving on the runway by causing her to crash into a fence, causing an estimated $20,000 worth of damage.

Neither she nor her infant son were injured.

Sergeant Crump said Anderson did not know where she was and probably did not know her son was in the car.

Anderson was also allegedly seen on CCTV driving into a car park through an exit lane and leaving by ramming though a hydrolic arm at a pay gate.

Anderson's son was secured in a child seat throughout the ordeal and was given to family members to be cared for.
