SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Cans of beer have littered the parking lot of a chapel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in a Salt Lake City suburb after a crash involving a semitractor-trailer.

Sandy Police Sgt. Jason Nielsen said the semi veered and fell from the road and into the church’s parking lot after it was hit by a pickup truck that ran a red light Thursday morning. Beer cans were strewn across the empty church parking lot.

Nielsen said the semi driver was left with injuries that were not life-threatening.

The pickup truck driver wasn’t hurt. Authorities haven’t determined if he will be cited.

The church building wasn’t damaged.
