Life Center CrashAround 4 a.m. Tuesday, police arrived at Life Center Foursquare Church at 1202 W. Government Way to find a Toyota station wagon had jumped the curb and crashed through the north wall of the church and onto the main stage of the auditorium, according to a news release.

The driver fled the scene and police have not arrested anyone. Detectives, however, have identified a person of interest in the incident, according to the release.
