MURRYSVILLE (KDKA) – An elderly man crashed into a Westmoreland County church just moments after service started Sunday morning.

The 76-year-old man crashed into the First United Methodist Church in Murrysville as the second service of the day was beginning.

Members of the church are thankful for good timing because had it happened any earlier, people would have been standing in the car’s path.

“About 15 or 20 minutes earlier it would have been really devastating,” Carrie Bortz said. ”So, we were really blessed that it was timed the way it was.”

A few people were hit with flying glass, but their injuries were not severe.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured and it’s not known what led to the accident at this time.
