One person was taken to the hospital Sunday after a vehicle slammed into the side of Our Lady Of Good Counsel Church just before the close of 11:15 a.m. Mass.

A dispatcher with the Fairfax County Police Department told Patch on Sunday afternoon that one person was taken to the hospital after the incident with non-life threatening injuries. It's not clear if that victim was the driver.

A building inspector also went out to the scene on Wolftrap Road, the dispatcher said. The car was towed.

Resident Valerie Mooney was attending the 11:15 a.m Mass Sunday morning around 12:15 p.m. but it wasn't until she left the church that she saw and heard the accident scene.

"It wasn't until we left the building that anyone knew it had happened," she told Patch.

Its not yet known how much damage the church sustained, or what caused the accident.

Patch will update this story as more information becomes available.
