    A car slammed into a funeral home and interrupted a Saturday morning service in Swansea, Massachusetts.

    Swansea Fire Chief Eric Hadjer says the car reversed into the front of the Waring-Sullivan Home of Memorial Tribute at Birchcrest on Gardners Neck Road.

    The car then reversed through another set of doors and ended up in the lobby.

    Hadjer says the car struck a gas fireplace in the room adjacent to the funeral service. The gas was immediately shut off.
