A man is charged with crashing his car into a Northwest Side church and
running away from the scene.

Police say 21-year-old Ivan Perea lost control of his car at the
intersection of Normandy and Diversey. He crashed into Saint Gregory The
Illuminator Armenian Church. The church was empty at the time. But the
impact scattered debris into a basement classroom.

Police caught up with Perea at his home a short time after the accident.
