Car Crashes Into Fla. Church On Easter, Injures 21


An Easter celebration at a church in Fort Myers, Fla., ended with a bang Sunday when a car lost control and smashed through the building, knocking over pews and trapping churchgoers.

The accident left a gaping hole in the front of Second Haitian Baptist Church. A woman was turning into a parking space at the church when the accident happened, according to WINK. The car burst through the packed church and pinned parishioners attending services underneath the vehicle. Church members used jacks from their own cars to lift the vehicle up and rescue those trapped underneath.

No one was so seriously injured that they required surgery, but 18 people were admitted to area hospitals. There were so many injuries that the county was worried emergency services were going to be overwhelmed.
