LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)- 24-year-old Deante Beard, the man who crashed into the church, passed away Saturday. Family and members of the community held a candlelight vigil at the Church at 8:00 P.M.
It all happened just before 3:30 Thursday morning on the 500 block of South Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard. They say the man was driving south on Martin Luther King Jr when the vehicle left the roadway and ended up inside.
The 24-years-old was rushed to a local hospital.
The van went through the church sideways, but did land on all four wheels which was crucial to rescuing the driver.
"That helped us out dramatically in that aspect in that we were able to quickly access the patient, quickly get him out of the vehicle into a waiting ambulance and get him to a trauma center quickly," said Eric Weber, PIO for Lansing fire department.
Police closed off the area south of Kalamazoo and Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard but have now reopened it.
Church members say they will move their early morning services and prayer assemblies to another location within the church, but it hasn't dampened their spirit.
"People are very supportive of us trying to get the church back together," said Wayne Lynn, chairman of the deacons ministry. "They've asked what they can do, what things they can get a handle on."
They are also sending their thoughts and prayers to the driver and his family.
"The facility can be repaired," said Melvin T. Jones, pastor. "I hope he can be repaired as well, what ever the damages might be."
The cause of the crash is still under investigation. They say speed may be a contributing factor.
