Vehicle crashes into Town Creek church, 2 injured

LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ala. -- Two people were injured after a vehicle crashed into a Lawrence County church Sunday morning, according to authorities.

Town Creek Police said a vehicle hit First Missionary Baptist Church just after 10 a.m. Officer Dennis Sharp said a church member that was working in the sound room inside the building at the time was injured by debris. Both the church member and the driver were transported to the hospital to be treated for their injuries.

Church members told WHNT News 19 that both victims were responsive after the crash.

After the victims were taken to the hospital, the uninjured congregation finished worshiping in their life center and will continue to have services there until their building is repaired.

"We're caught off guard but by the same token we are thankful to the Lord that things were no worse than how they were," said Bryce Lipscomb, the pastor at First Missionary Baptist.

Lipscomb says when bad things happen he knows the Lord is still good and in control.
