A Pitt County church was damaged after an elderly driver says her car brakes went out.
Some corner bricks at the Hickory Grove Free Will Baptist Church were damaged, along with cracks on the front porch because of the crash. The wreck happened around 11:00 a.m. at the intersection of Staton Mill Road and NC 30 in Pitt County.
Four people in the car received minor injuries and were transported to Pitt County Memorial Hospital.
