BARTOW, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a small plane has crashed in a church parking lot in central Florida injuring the pilot.

Polk County Fire Rescue said on its Facebook page the plane went down Sunday and crashed into a vehicle in the parking lot of Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Bartow.

The agency says the pilot, a male, was injured and taken to the hospital.

Photographs posted by the fire agency showed an overturned white SUV with a wreckage of a single-engine aircraft on top of it.
