Car Plows Into Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in East Orange

By rlsmetro on

Police are reporting no serious injuries for the driver of a car that lost control and ended up inside an East Orange cemetery Saturday morning.

It happened during the early morning hours on the South Grove Street side of Fairmont Cemetery.

Police say they believe speed was a factor when the driver somehow lost control and slammed through a metal fence.

According to officials, once inside the graveyard, the out of control older model CRV knocked over a dozen headstones and finally rested on and damaged a few additional stones.

A crane was called to the scene to lift the car out of Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
