This is absolutely disrespectful to the families of the fallen heroes who died so we can enjoy our freedom. I hope she gets jail time!
A Texas woman trying to beat traffic after a flyover to honor the end of World War II ran over multiple gravestones on her way out of Houston National Cemetery, video shows.
The woman behind the wheel of the SUV, who is now wanted by Houston police, was seen driving on grass at the veteran’s cemetery three different times that day, Amanda Hill said. Her family was visiting the graves of her grandparents, Robert Eugene Marsh, a first lieutenant in World War II, and his wife, Ruth Irene Marsh, in honor of Mother’s Day and the Lone Star Flight Museum flyover, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of the war Robert fought as a B-17 bomber pilot.
“She tried to back up, and then went up on the curb of the section where my grandparents are buried,” Hill told KTRK. “[The woman] couldn’t get around some cars and then she started running over the graves.”
While trying to get around traffic inside the cemetery, the woman “went over dozens of graves,” Hill said, prompting several witnesses nearby to yell out for her to stop, the station reports.
The second time Hill saw the woman drive onto grass, she was feet away from running over her grandparents’ grave site.
“At one point her tires were actually sitting on headstones,” Hill said. “We were not going to let that happen [to Hill’s grandparents’ graves].”
Hill said she and her family got in front of the woman’s car, asking that she get back onto the road. Other witnesses started to gather to record and take photos of the woman. A quick glance around her and Hill said she could see people in other cars with their jaws dropped.
The third time the woman was seen driving on the grass was when she was attempting to leave the cemetery and traffic was the most packed. At one point, Hill said her mother had to jump out of harm’s way because the woman driver refused to stop and almost ran her over.
“I was in shock, we were all just kind of appalled,” Hill said. “If she got to my grandparents’ grave it would have been a different situation, [but] I think my mom and I did a good job of keeping our cool.”
According to the latest update of this story via Fox26:
Authorities say they have identified the woman who was captured in a shocking video driving over graves at the Houston National Cemetery.
According to the Harris County Pct. 4 Constable’s Office, the suspect was cooperative with investigators and openly admitted that her vehicle got blocked in at the cemetery, and her husband, who is also a veteran, was in the vehicle and started feeling ill from his diabetes.
Investigators met with representatives of the veterans’ cemetery who decided to withdraw criminal charges due to the circumstances. The Constable’s Office says the two parties agreed the suspect would pay for any and all damages cause by her actions.
