Driver Arrested For Plowing Over Dozens Of Memorial Day Crosses In Park

A committee in Henderson, KY scrambles to fix the damage done by a driver who plowed over dozens of Memorial Day crosses in Henderson Park.

 HENDERSON, KY (WFIE)  Saturday was an emotional day for many in Henderson, after a driver plowed down more than 160 Memorial Day crosses in Central Park.

Police arrested 27-year-old Anthony Burrus in the case. He’s facing charges of leaving the scene of a crash and criminal mischief.

Officials say they found the dozens of crosses knocked over by a car Saturday morning. Some of them were damaged, while the others were destroyed.

On each of the 5,000 crosses, there is a name of a member of the military who has passed away.

The committee in charge of the crosses spent the rest of the weekend repairing them and putting them back in place before the Memorial Day ceremony at the park.

Who knows if this guy was drunk or just lost control but Memorial Day crosses are one of the worst things one could hit right before the holiday. Luckily the town had come together to repair the damage.
