A driver crashed into the entrance of Point Enterprise Cemetery on Friday, Sept. 16, shortly before midnight, damaging the wrought iron gate and leaving a large hole in the ground near the fence.
“I heard the truck racing down LCR 502 and stepped out into the porch,” said Mary Wills, of Dripping Springs, who was visiting Helen Matthews in Point Enterprise. “It skidded onto LCR 504, and I heard it hit the gate. The truck disengaged from the fence, then raced down LCR 504, stopping just around the first bend.”
Wills and her husband, Mike Matthews got into their car and drove up the road until they saw that the fleeing truck had stopped, shortly around the bend.
“At that point I heard two young men argue and slam the truck several times before driving away,” she said.
