PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. — Florida deputies didn’t have far to travel when responding to a car wreck because it crashed into a sheriff’s office substation.
A Broward Sheriff’s Office news release says the crash occurred shortly before noon Monday at the agency’s South Broward district office in Pembroke Park.

Deputies say a woman smashed her car into the office’s community service room and a fire erupted inside the vehicle.
A worker who was painting inside the office helped the woman out of the car. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue transported the woman to a Hollywood hospital with third-degree burns.
A sheriff’s office employee who hurt herself while evacuating was also hospitalized as a precaution.
Officials weren’t immediately naming the driver or what caused the crash.
