BELLEVUE, Wash. — No one was injured when a car smashed through the wall of a Bellevue church on Sunday morning.

KOMO-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2c6pZFp ) that the crash happened just after 7 a.m. at the New Hope Ministries on NE 4th Street.

Capt. Marcia Harnden with Bellevue Police Department says the driver was identified as a 32-year-old Renton man. He was found trying to recruit people to help him pull his car from the building. The vehicle had made it all the way inside.

The man was arrested and booked for investigation of not only DUI, but also hit-and-run for trying to get help to leave the scene.

No one was inside the church and there are no reported injuries.
