    Bridgeport Hospital authorities said an elderly man lost control of his car and crashed through fencing near the hospital emergency room entrance on Monday.

    A car traveling through Bridgeport this morning crashed through an iron fence outside Bridgeport Hospital and ended up in the stairwell outside the emergency room entrance after the elderly driver lost control, according to a spokesperson for the hospital.

    Hospital officials said an elderly couple was traveling on Mill Hill Avenue around 10:30 a.m. Monday when the husband lost control of the car, which jumped the curb and crashed through a section of iron fencing outside the hospital.

    The car came to rest on a stairwell leading to the emergency room walk-in entrance, hospital officials said. The couple was taken to the emergency room for an evaulation but did not appear to be injured.

    Hospital operations were not affected by the crash.
