Lobby of Emergency Room at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown Reopens

The lobby of the emergency room at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown reopened Tuesday, nearly two weeks after a man crashed his car into it and set himself on fire.

On Saturday, the hospital reopened its normal emergency department and established a temporary entrance at the hospital tower on Crescent Street. 

The hospital also began accepting ambulance patients again.

Patients can now enter the emergency department as they always have. The department’s temporary entrance is closed and the hospital is operating as it did before Feb. 22.

The man who police said crashed into the building died from his injuries. 

The investigation into the crash is ongoing. The Middletown Police Department, the FBI and several other outside federal, state and local agencies are all involved in various parts of this investigation.
