Car crashes into Connecticut hospital, catches fire

"We do not know what this individual's motives are, and we will not speculate to his motives".

Police said no threat was made to the hospital before this incident.

The hospital was placed in an "emergency operations mode", hospital officials said.

The mayor said the crash was "deliberate".

Chief William McKenna said state police, Hartford and Federal Bureau of Investigation bomb squads are on the scene at Middlesex Hospital and at the driver's home.

A 27-year-old man is suspected of crashing his vehicle into a hospital in CT and then setting himself on fire with the cans of gasoline in his back seat.

The hospital said on their website that all patients and staff at Middlesex Hospital all accounted for and safe.

It is believed that Ellam lives at the home where yellow police tape now surrounds it. The bomb squad also showed up with two bomb-sniffing dogs.

Neighboring homes were evacuated as a precaution. The hospital said it is not allowing visitors, except for special circumstances.

"I heard a noise", witness Gary Mills said.

According to Chief McKenna, Ellam is known to Middletown police and has an extensive criminal record dating back to 2008. "I was in my room. I said, that guy's on fire".

The front of the auto burst into flames and the driver set himself on fire before he got out of the vehicle, police said. DPH will be providing Middlesex Hospital with three sections of the State's mobile field hospital to serve as a temporary Emergency Department until they are back up and operational.

Emergency patients at Middlesex were brought to MidState Medical Center, the Hospital of Central Connecticut and Hartford Hospital until for the time being.
