Jesus take the wheel?

A Florida woman crashed her car into a house on Monday while praying and driving, the Northwest Florida Daily News reports.



The crash occurred when a 28-year-old woman closed her eyes to pray while traveling down a Mary Esther, Florida street. The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said woman blew through a stop sign, went through the intersection and rammed into front of a house. The woman tried to back up, but her tires spun in the sand.

The woman was cited for reckless driving with property damage, and was taken to a local hospital.
