    Police in Hudson, New Hampshire, responded early Monday morning to a report of a vehicle in a church.

    Upon arrival it was learned that a 2004 Jeep Liberty had driven through the plate glass window of the Hudson Community Church on Central St.

    A preliminary investigation reveals the SUV was traveling west on Central St. and failed to negotiate a turn on the street. The driver lost control and initially struck a lolly column which supported the main entrance into the church.

    The lolly column became detached and the momentum of the vehicle caused it to crash through a large plate glass window.

    The driver, who was identified as Eddy Garcia, 47, of Nashua was uninjured. He was placed under arrest for suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

    The collision remains under investigation.
