A man is in critical condition after crashing his auto into Middlesex Hospital in Middletown and then setting himself on fire on Thursday morning.

On the morning of Thursday, February 22, in the American city of Middletown, in CT, the man in the vehicle drove into the hospital premises and staged a self-immolation. A fire crew then arrives at the scene and tried to extinguish the fire. The motorist was taken by Lifestar helicopter to Bridgeport Hospital's burn unit.

The suspect was known to police, according to Drew.

A auto crashed into the emergency room entrance of Middlesex Hospital Thursday. Middlesex Hospital's ED is now on diversion.

When asked whether the incident is being investigating as a possible act of terrorism, Drew said officials are not speculating what the man's motives may have been.

Authorities evacuated homes in the neighborhood where the driver lives while searching his residence, but there was no immediate indication of a bomb at either location. They also reportedly found a spray device similar to one used to spray weeds.

The Middletown Police Department is now cooperating with other state and federal authorities, including the FBI's New Haven Division, lead by Special Agent in Charge Patricia Ferrick.


Patients who visit the temporary space should go to the main entrance of the hospital, where a security officer will greet them. However, he says that police are securing other public facilities in Middletown, including schools, out of an abundance of caution.

"Our emergency department is closed until further notice".

Giuffrida announced that all of Friday's non-emergency surgeries will be cancelled and a temporary ban will be placed on visitors, which will also apply to volunteers.

"I was supposed to start my volunteering shift in the emergency room about 30 minutes after the incident", Solomon said. "I said, that guy's on fire".

"I don't like giving negativity power, so I just thought, 'What?'" she said.

This is a developing story.
