The teacher was getting ready for an open house when the logging truck's brakes failed, according to police. The truck hit another car before careening into the church.

"I knew that it was favor of the Lord,” said Pastor Phil Seay. “I knew that it could have been a classroom full of kids later or a teacher."

The driver of the car that was struck had to go to the hospital with a few broken bones but will be OK.
