QUINCY -- A Quincy man was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and later crashing into a Quincy church Saturday night.

The Quincy Police Department reports that John Monahan, 53, was traveling east on Maine Street around 11:30 p.m. and struck a black Toyota occupied by two women, who were not hurt.

The report says Monahan then turned left to go northbound on Fourth Street and struck a light pole and unoccupied parked van. Monahan reportedly then turned onto Hampshire Street and his 2005 white Chevrolet van struck the Unity Church of Quincy, 403 Hampshire, and stopped.

Monahan was arrested around 1:30 a.m. Sunday on charges of driving under the influence, failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and improper lane usage. He was taken to Adams County Jail and later posted a $300 bond.

The Quincy Fire Department, Adams County Ambulance Service and Adams County Sheriff's Department assisted.
