KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – A stolen church van crashed into a convenience store in West Knoxville Sunday morning.

The Korean Church of Knoxville van crashed into the Weigel’s on Westland Drive. The entire front wall of the store was demolished.

A deputy noticed glass on Pellissippi Parkway near Northshore Drive. When the deputy was checking businesses in the area, he found the 2006 Ford E350 van abandoned near Town Center Boulevard.

The driver side door lock was pried out and the ignition was tampered with in order to start the vehicle.

Investigators do not know the suspect’s identity and the circumstances that led to the crash.
