A vehicle hit Broward County's personnel building early Friday and left a huge hole in a wall, forcing government workers to relocate.

The accident at Andrews Avenue and Broward Boulevard happened at 1:53 a.m., said city Fire Rescue spokesman Matt Little.

A woman ran a red light on Andrews, lost control of her vehicle and hit the wall, said police spokesman Sgt. Frank Sousa.

The woman was treated by Fort Lauderdale firefighters and then taken to Broward General Medical Center, Little said. Her injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, Little said.

No one was in the building at the time, said county spokeswoman Judy Sarver.

Officials determined the building is unsafe until repairs can be made.

The county will have to temporarily relocate its job application processing services, which were handled in the building, Sarver said. People seeking county jobs should go to Broward's government website — — to apply online.

Sarver said the damage was still being assessed Friday and county officials were not sure when the building would reopen.
