UPDATE: Motorist fled scene after damaging Legacy of Love Monument

Posted on 14 Nov 2009 at 12:32pm

I finally tracked down a police report about the accident early Friday that damaged the Legacy of Love Monument at Oak Lawn Avenue and Cedar Springs Road. Based on the report, it appears as though the motorist who plowed through the Oak Lawn Triangle, causing extensive damage to the monument, fled the scene without leaving any information. According to a witness who called in the report at 2:28 a.m. on Friday, the motorist asked the witness to help move his vehicle off the bricks that were underneath it. The witness told the motorist that the vehicle wouldn’t move because it was “high-centered” on one of the pillars. The motorist then got back in the vehicle, identified as a dark-colored, late-model Chevy Impala or Malibu, and managed to drive off the bricks and away from the scene. The motorist told the witness that he needed to get to Las Colinas or Irving, according to the report. That’s all the information I currently have, but I’ll let you know if I hear anything more.
