A Tesla Model X veered off the road Wednesday morning in East Meadow and struck a van in a church parking lot, officials said.

The Tesla, an electric-powered SUV, was heading north on Newbridge Road about 10:30 a.m. when it veered into the parking lot of St. Raphael’s Church, officials said.

The North Bellmore Fire Department responded to the scene because there was a brief power outage as a result of the crash, Fire Chief George Serviss said.

There were no injuries, the fire chief said.
