Mount Holly Cemetery wall damaged

Posted By on Thu, Mar 31, 2011 at 6:23 AM

Anne Orsi, a member of the Mount Holly Cemetery Association, writes to tell me a vehicle crashed three times Wednesday morning into the historic cemetery's wall along Broadway. The collisions did catastrophic damage, perhaps as much as $70,000 worth.

I'll have a longer report from her and photos later. Needed: white knights. The association had to work hard two years ago to repair less damage from a serious collision. This one is going to be even tougher.

UPDATE: Still awaiting some detailed information, but Orsi says a driver of a 2004 Tahoe says she lost control about 2 a.m. Wednesday because she was sideswiped by another car and her spinning car hit the wall front and back in three places. She told police she had insurance, but the extent of that coverage isn't known. The wreck uprooted a couple of the cemetery's huge climbing rose bushes.
