[HENDERSON, KY] (WFIE) — Saturday was an emotion 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.
