Flight 93 Chapel Closed after Fatal Crash

Associated Press

A car has crashed into a Pennsylvania chapel honoring the September 11 victims of United Airlines Flight 93, temporarily closing it.

State police say the car hit a chapel wall after a two-vehicle accident Tuesday. They say the accident killed a Shanksville woman and injured the other driver.

The chapel in Stonycreek Township is a spiritual memorial to the 40 victims of Flight 93, which crashed in a nearby field on September 11, 2001, after being hijacked by terrorists.

The chapel is overseen by the Most Rev. Ramzi Musallam. He says an engineer will need to assess the damage before visitors can be allowed back in.

He says the force of the crash knocked photos of Flight 93 victims off the wall. The chapel also contains various September 11 mementos.
