A car smashed into the side of a hearse during a funeral procession Wednesday, knocking it on its side.

The crash happened early Wednesday afternoon in Colerain Township. A funeral procession was headed east on Banning Road across Colerain Avenue when a Toyota Camry slammed into the hearse.

The car hit slightly behind the passenger door, missing the priest sitting in the passenger seat. Police say he was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. The driver was not taken to the hospital.

The casket with the body in it was transferred to a different hearse that was lent by another local funeral home.

There are no charges at this time and the crash remains under investigation.
