Small plane crashes into car parked at church; pilot injured

BARTOW, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a pilot was seriously injured when his small plane crashed into a car parked outside a church in Florida.

Polk County Fire Rescue said the plane went down during the Sunday service at the Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Bartow.

The church has a medical ministry and two registered nurses rushed out to assist the injured pilot until rescue workers arrived.

The agency says the pilot, a male, was hospitalized with serious injuries. Photographs posted by the fire agency on Facebook showed an overturned white SUV with a wrecked single-engine aircraft on top of it.
