Fence wrecked in car accident
By SUE WATSON
A Monday morning accident on South Center Street took out seven sections of the wrought-iron fence at Hill Crest Cemetery, according to chief William Hollowell.
The incident is believed to have taken place around 4 a.m., the chief said.
A vehicle was traveling in the south-bound lane when it veered into the north-bound lane and then crossed the ditch. It ran up an embankment and onto the sidewalk area, and then sideswiped the fence, taking out the sections. Hollowell said the driver lost some pieces of his vehicle in the accident area and drove the vehicle down the hill to Honduras Street. He drove the vehicle through a neighbor’s yard before parking it in his uncle’s carport.
Hollowell said the registration was run on the vehicle after fragments of the vehicle were matched with the vehicle in the carport. The uncle then identified the owner of the vehicle, he said.
Darrell Moore, 30, of the 100 block of Greenbriar Circle, turned himself in to authorities and was charged with felony leaving the scene of an accident and with driving without liability insurance, Hollowell said.
The fence is under repair and construction workers had sandblasted the fence and were ready to prime the section for painting this week.
