The sanctity of a Federal Way church was shattered Sunday afternoon when a man drove his car through the church’s wall, demolishing congregation seating.
A woman in her late 50s who was in the building sustained a leg injury, said acting battalion chief Ryan Herrera of South King Fire and Rescue.
“It looks like (the driver) accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake,” Herrera said.
The car first hit a parked car in the parking lot of apartments in the 1600 block of South 308th Street.
The driver then drove through the wall of The Potter’s House, a Christian church in a strip mall in the 30800 block of Pacific Highway South.
At the time of the accident the church was being used by congregants of Light of Love Presbyterian Church.
The driver was not injured.
