Two men were injured Sunday night in Post Falls when a powered parachute crashed into a school bus in a church parking lot.

David Endsley, 50, of Redmond, Ore., was attempting to take off in the parking lot of Faith Ministries Church on 16th Avenue when the parachute crashed into an unoccupied school bus owned by the church. Endsley was treated at the scene for minor injuries, a news release from the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office said.

Endsley’s passenger, 18-year-old Collin Williams, of Post Falls, was taken to Kootenai Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries, the release said.

Authorities from the sheriff’s office, along with Kootenai Fire, responded to the crash around 7:54 p.m. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor, the release said.
