Miami chief: Car crashes intentionally into police station

April 06, 2018 - 10:23 AM

MIAMI - Officials say a man has intentionally crashed his car into a Miami police station, but a motive remains unclear.

Miami Police Chief Jorge Colina told reporters that there was a weapon and a safe inside the vehicle and they called for a bomb squad investigation as a precaution.

Colina says the 36-year-old man breached the rear gate early Friday before regaining speed and crashing his car into a wall in the back of the station. The suspect was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.

The police chief says he does not have a violent criminal record. He says relatives of the suspect told police that he had been acting bizarre in the last couple of days.
