A man is in critical condition after he crashed his auto into the emergency room entrance of a CT hospital and set himself on fire Thursday.
A man who lives across from the hospital said he heard what sounded like an explosion and saw a man on fire come running out, screaming for help. A fire crew then arrives at the scene and tried to extinguish the fire.
Ellam has an extensive criminal history in CT that goes as far back as 2008, according to WFSB. Police say he was on fire when he exited the vehicle after crashing it through the walk-in doors of the Middlesex Hospital emergency department at about 10 a.m.
Middlesex Hospital issued an alert on its website February 23 indicating the ER will remain closed and all nonemergency surgeries scheduled for February 23 will be canceled.
Mayor Drew says they believe there is no threat to the community, and they believe it is an isolated incident.
Police cordoned off Ellam's residence in Middletown as part of the investigation and homes in that area were evacuated. His previous convictions include driving under the influence, criminal mischief, and assault.
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. However, he says that police are securing other public facilities in Middletown, including schools, out of an abundance of caution.
Middlesex Hospital has invoked temporary crisis measures, as have some other hospitals in the area. However, their Westbrook and Marlborough facilities remain open.
Still, anyone who needs immediate attention should call 911, and an ambulance will bring them to the nearest emergency department. The hospital has canceled non-emergent surgeries and outpatient radiology tests that were scheduled for Friday.
