PITTSBURG — A two-car collision Saturday ended with a sedan inside the a portion of the LifeChangers Church.
According to the Pittsburg Police Department, units were dispatched simultaneously to a report of a wreck at the intersection of 6th and Broadway, and an alarm at LifeChangers Church — located at 7th and Broadway — at approximately 2:22 p.m.
Officers learned the alarm at LifeChangers Church was a result of the wreck at 6th and Broadway. According to PPD, Judy Wood was in the process of turning northbound onto Broadway in her 2000 Chrysler 300 when a 2008 Dodge Ram pickup failed to stop at the intersection and hit her. The pickup was driven by Alfred Snowden, and carrying Kelly Castagnola as a passenger.
The collision caused Wood’s car to travel northbound on Broadway and veer east into the private drive of LifeChangers Church. The car drove through the south side of the church and into the building where it came to a stop.
Wood’s vehicle lost fluids and parts along Broadway and witnesses reported that her airbags deployed, but this was not stated in the report from PPD. The pickup sustained damage to the front bumper.
Drivers and passengers were treated by Crawford County EMS on scene, and Wood was transported to Via Christi Hospital for further treatment.
Pittsburg Fire Department also responded to both locations.
The incident is still under investigation by PPD.
