EAST WINDSOR, Conn. A 68-year-old woman crashed a car into the front doors of the police department lobby Wednesday morning, then backed up and tried to hit an officer, striking the building a second time, police said.

The whole building shook from the first crash, which smashed the lobby doors, Chief Edward DeMarco Jr. said.

The driver fled the scene but was apprehended less than a mile away, DeMarco said. Police said it appeared she intentionally drove the Chrysler PT Cruiser at the station about 8 a.m.
