GRANITE CITY, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- A person was taken into custody by police after they crashed into a Granite City church early Sunday morning.

Police say the accident happened around 3:22 a.m. The driver reportedly lost control of the vehicle in the 3000 block of Washington, then crashed into the front door and column of the Calvary Baptist Church.

Church members gathered Sunday to help with the clean up, but the pastor said he was unsure if they would hold services this morning.

Police believe alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.
