(CBS 17/YouTube)

Six people were injured when a car came barreling through the church wall on Sunday. An elderly congregant reportedly drove a Toyota Corolla into Crossroads United Methodist Church in Columbus, Ohio, about 15 minutes after the service began.

"I didn't see anything. I just went with the flow. It slid us across the aisle," Marie Winnestaffer, who was sitting in a pew that was struck by the car, tells the Columbus Dispatch. "It felt like a bomb."

The Rev. Jay Anderson tells an NBC affiliate that members were singing a hymn when the car crashed through the wall. He says that the wall "just exploded" and that pieces of glass went flying.
