Medical Emergency Results in Car Crashing Through Orlando Church
A group of the congregation from a church in Orlando received a tremendous surprise on Thursday, June 13th, when a car crashed through the front of the building and drove through the church’s lobby only thirty minutes before a large meeting was supposed to take place within the structure. According to reports from emergency response crews working within the city of Orlando, the auto accident took place sometime close to 7:30 at night. At 8:00, a service was scheduled to happen at the church, meaning that if the accident had happened just a short time later, the results could have been tragic in the extreme.
According to some of the reports from the scene, the driver of the SUV involved was headed down a nearby road when they suffered from a medical emergency which caused them to completely lose their vision for a short period of time. During this time, the driver lost control of their vehicle. As a result, the car crashed through a line of bushes and then through the front doors of the church. The car made it through the entire lobby of the building until it was forced to come to a stop by becoming wedged between several walls flanking a hallway leading to the rest of the worship space.
Because no one was inside of the church at the time of the crash, no pedestrians were injured by the wildly out-of-control car. Somehow, the car’s driver also escaped from suffering any injuries as a result of the crash. In fact, the report stated that shortly after the accident this person’s vision returned and they were up and walking around the parking lot of the church within an hour or so after the crash took place.
It is believed that the church was able to be cleaned up and put back together in time for the weekly Sunday service, although it is not known if the building sustained any structural damage that will need to be addressed or fixed in the upcoming months.
At the time of this writing, it is not believed that any charges are currently pending in this case.
