into a church in pontotoc tonight... it happened on oxford street at west heights baptist church. that's where we find wtva's symone woolridge who joins us live to tell us what happened. ironically .... nearly a month ago... a woman drove into a cleaning business down the road.but tonight.. church members tell me a man who may have had medical issues... went right through the building. a man driving this car drove through west heights baptist church. i talked to the pastor about an hour ago and he says hewas at the grocery store when he got a call saying someone drove through his church.the driver.. he says seemed like he was okay. the pastor stopped by the hospital and prayed with him. ive tried to get in touch with the police chief to get the status on that driver but have not heard back yet. this is actually the childrens area.. they're here on sundays. the pastor told me if this wouldve happened last night for bible study services... this accident couldve been really bad. reporting live sw wtva 9 news stinger
