SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Cans of beer littered the parking lot of a church of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in a Salt Lake City suburb after a crash involving a semi-trailer that was carrying cases of brew banned by the faith.

Sandy Police Stg. 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 on Thursday. Beer cans were strewn across the empty church parking lot.

One of the faith's key rules is a ban on members drinking alcohol.

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 church building wasn't damaged.
