Driving lesson in Waukesha's Prairie Home Cemetery results in police call
Car crashes into headstones, damages tree, flag holder
Cemeteries aren't often the place teenagers go to learn to drive.
But the Prairie Home Cemetery was the site where one Waukesha parent took her daughter to practice driving.
The driving lesson, however, went south quickly and resulted in a police presence at the Waukesha cemetery.
According to the police blotter, a tree and brass flag holder inside Prairie Home Cemetery, 605 S. Prairie Ave., were damaged after a girl, who was learning how to drive from her mother, lost control of the vehicle prior to 9:21 a.m. July 22.
The car also crashed into some headstones.
The police report said the girl's mother was cooperative with police and cemetery staff will seek payment for the damages.
Cemetery officials did not wish to file a formal complaint.
