Truck Crashes Into Church

A Kentucky congregation will have to find another place to worship after a crash left their building in ruins.

A truck plowed into the Hilltop Trinity Full Gospel Tabernacle on Kentucky 1649 in Casey County.

It happened just after 8:00 Thursday night.

Police say the truck ran off the road, struck the building and burst into flames.

The pastor says the church suffered heavy damage to the sanctuary, but says he's thankful no one was seriously hurt.

The driver has been identified as Christopher Schubert. He and his passenger were treated and released at a local hospital.

Police say it is likely speed was a factor in the crash, but alcohol was not suspected.

The pastor says the church will have services this Sunday. They'll hold them in the yard, outside the church.
