A hospital emergency room in Broward had an emergency of its own over the weekend: A car sailed through the front entrance and came to rest near a nursing station.

No one was injured in the crash, which busted down the glass doors of the ER at Broward Health Imperial Point, 6401 N. Federal Hwy. in Fort Lauderdale.

The driver intentionally drove the car into the lobby Saturday night and has been taken into custody, according to Fort Lauderdale Deputy Fire Chief Timothy Heiser.
