SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A 73-year-old man has been charged with DUI after authorities say he crashed his car into two parked cars and a church office building while driving drunk.

Robert Gordon Larson has been charged with DUI for the crash that occurred just before midnight Thursday. The crash left a hole in the side of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod office. Church officials worked early Friday to patch the hole. A damage estimate wasn’t immediately available.

A 77-year-old female passenger in the car was taken to a hospital with a broken leg.

Reached by phone, Larson said the accident was his fault. He said he had been drinking “too much.”
