Darren Doyle, story:
The driver involved in a hit-and-run at Cove Hollow Cemetery has come forward and admitted to the incident, according to a member of Cove Hollow Church.
The Edmonson Voice received a tip that someone had come forward and we reached out to a member of the church for more information. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the church member confirmed that the issue had been resolved.
"The perpetrator contacted one of the deacons and said they would pay for damages in full," the member said. "The church decided not to press charges and only a select few know the name of the person. I am not one of them."
Sheriff Shane Doyle said he is glad to see the person responsible come forward to make things right with the church and cemetery.
"Not every mistake should end with someone going to jail," he said. "Some mistakes can be corrected, and when someone is willing to own their mistakes, it makes it much easier to deal with. We've spoken with the overseers of the cemetery and they have informed us they are declining to press charges."
No other information was given as to how or why the incident happened, which took place after midnight on Sunday, May 9th.
