CINCINNATI, Ohio (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A crash in Cincinnati involving a funeral hearse ended with the hearse upside-down.

Witnesses say the driver of a red Toyota crashed into the hearse.

Trapped inside were the driver of the hearse and a priest.

The grieving family on their way to the cemetery was horrified.

"The car's flipped over, the casket's laying there and it's damaged and I can see everything and it's just… My sister, she can't even talk right now. She's devastated from this. Already the worst day of our life," said Kenneth White.  "I'm heartbroken. And now I've got a heart ache on top of heartbreak."

The two drivers involved in the crash suffered minor injuries.

The priest was also admitted to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
