Cans of beer have littered the parking lot of a meetinghouse of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Sandy after a semitrailer crashed that was carrying cases of the brew.
Sandy Police Sgt. Jason Nielsen said the semitrailer veered and fell from a road and into the church’s parking lot after it was hit by a pickup truck that ran a red light early Thursday morning. Beer cans were strewn across the empty church parking lot.
The Utah-based faith teaches its members to abstain from alcohol as part of its health code, called the Word of Wisdom.
Nielsen says the semitrailer driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
The pickup truck driver wasn't hurt. Authorities haven't determined if he will be cited.
The meetinghouse wasn’t damaged.
