| Friday, September 4, 2009


SOUTHINGTON, Conn. Police say a car carrying two men and a dog crashed through the front doors of a Connecticut hospital and ended up in the lobby.

Authorities say no one was in the lobby and no one injured when the car slammed into the Hospital of Central Connecticut in Southington just before 3 a.m. Friday.

The two men and dog fled the scene. Police say one man was captured about a quarter-mile away after punching an officer. The officer, who was also bitten by the dog, was treated for minor injuries.

Police say they caught the second man later Friday. Authorities are still looking for the dog.

Workers are repairing the damage to the hospital, which is operating normally.
