No staff members were hurt but the condition of the driver is unknown Lyle Shelton, Lobby manager, tweeted. Along with Shelton's tweet was an image of the burnt out vehicle and he called it a "car bomb."
The blast was powerful enough to destroy several building windows and damaged an extensive amount of property.
The van headed toward the front of the building, a police spokesperson confirmed.
Of course, no determination as to whether the event was intentional or accidental was made, but it's a Christian building, it's almost Christmas, the van was packed with gas and the incident comes only hours after another minivan drove into a farmers market in Beijing and few days after a Christmas market in Berlin was attacked by a jihadist with a truck.
No screams of "Allahu Akbar" were heard, but that doesn't mean they weren't screamed.
"There are no public safety issues and ACT are seeking any witnesses to the incident," the spokesperson said.
Please have a safe and happy Christmas and Hanukkah.
