Woman Intentionally Slams Car Into Tuscola County Church Classroom
A woman from Millington, Michigan is recovering after intentionally driving her car through a wall and into a church classroom over the weekend.
A little after 10 pm Sunday night, a 56-year-old woman drove her 2007 Dodge Charger through a brick wall and into Paul Lutheran Church & School in Millington. She didn't just crash into the wall, she literally went through the wall and into the classroom.
Luckily, it was late at night, on a weekend and no one was inside the building at the time of the incident. Had this happened in the middle of a school day, it would have a terrifying scene.
According to MLive, the woman had been experiencing a mental health crisis, said Tuscola County Undersheriff Robert Baxter. He could not comment on if the woman was trying to harm herself or someone else.
It's unclear why authorities believe the woman intentionally drove her car through the church classroom.
Obviously, the school is closed today.
St Paul Lutheran Church & School:
Due to structural damage, the building will be closed until further notice. We will not have access to the phones, so please contact staff by cell phone or Facebook if necessary. Please watch this page for further updates.
The woman was not seriously injured but she was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and evaluations.
Deputy LaFlure extends a special thanks to Millington Fire/Rescue, MMR and the Vassar Police Department for their quick and professional service.
This is just another example of why mental health awareness is important.
