A Tampa ministry won't be able to hold regular services tonight after a car plowed into their building.

The silver Chevy Impala came through the wall of Bay Center of Refuge Ministries at Henderson and Florida, just north of downtown.  The building was empty at the time.

"Praise God because no one was here to get injured," a church elder told Tampa Fire Rescue in a video shared on Periscope.

The cause of the crash was not immediately clear.
