84-year-old crashes car into Orange County church

An elderly woman accidentally crashed her car into an Orange County church Thursday morning, but no one was injured, authorities said.

The 84-year-old Irvine woman's car crashed into the Heritage Christian Fellowship in the 7400 block of East Chapman Avenue in Orange around 10 a.m., the Orange County Register reported.

The unidentified woman was trying to park her Toyota Camry when she accidentally stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake, crashing through a glass door and window, Sgt. Dan Adams of the Orange Police Department told the Register.

The car stopped about 20 feet from where a dozen people were holding a meeting, Adams said.

No injuries were reported and the crash was under investigation.
