A suspected drunk driver slammed a stolen truck into a church in the Old Strathcona area Sunday morning, police say.

The truck was allegedly stolen from a body shop at around 10 a.m. The truck took off, speeding for several blocks before crashing into another vehicle, police say.

It went on to hit a large tree before crashing into the Trinity Lutheran Church at 100th Street and 81st Avenue.
