(AP) -

A car has crashed through the front doors of a Grayslake, Illinois church that was hosting a donation drive for a food pantry.

Six people were hospitalized with injuries.

Lake County Sheriff's Police spokesman Christopher Covelli says none of the injuries is thought to be life-threatening.

The crash happened Saturday morning at the Wildwood Presbyterian Church in Grayslake.

The organizer of the food drive was pinned between the car bumper and a wall and had to be extricated by firefighters.

He says the car was driven by a 72-year-old woman coming to the food drive.

She was among the injured.

Covelli says she accelerated in the parking lot and crashed into the building, but a preliminary investigation has not determined why.
