White Lake police: Driver carrying gun without permit crashes, destroys headstones

White Lake Crash

WHITE LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. – White Lake police say a driver had a 1-year-old child with him and was also carrying a gun without a permit when he lost control of an SUV last week and flipped it in a cemetery.

The driver, a 22-year-old White Lake man, was eastbound on Elizabeth Lake Road when his car flipped over several times near Crayview Street. The car plowed into Lakeside Cemetery, running over several headstones.

The driver and child were not seriously hurt, but the driver faces a charge of carrying a weapon without a concealed weapons permit, which is a felony with a possible sentence up to 5 years.

The cemetery is operated by White Lake Township.
