A car crashed into a Broward Sheriff’s Office substation Monday — leaving a gaping hole in the building and sending one person to a hospital.
The crash at the South Broward district office, 3201 W. Hallandale Beach Blvd., in Pembroke Park happened shortly before 11:30 a.m., the sheriff’s office said.
The car, a red Toyota Camry, went fully into the building — only its rear was visible from outside the district office.
Whether it was the driver — or someone else — who was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital was not immediately known.
Also unknown is whether the crash was an accident or a deliberate act.
