Police are looking for a motorist who crashed through a fence surrounding Buckingham Fountain on Saturday morning, September 26.
The fountain itself was not damaged during the 4:48 a.m. incident, but repairs to the southern portion of the fence will cost about $100,000, police said.
The offender then fled the scene in their black or dark gray General Motors SUV that may be a Chevy Traverse, police said. It sustained damage to its front and sides, including the bumper and lights, according to a bulletin from CPD’s Major Accident Investigation Unit.
Investigators did not release any images of the actual vehicle, but they said the SUV looks similar to the stock photo above.
Anyone with information about the vehicle or its driver can contact Major Accidents at 312-745-4521 about CPD case number JD-379749.
