June 25, 7:31 p.m., a neighbor heard what sounded like a crash at Silver Street and Coyote Ridge Road. When officers arrived, it looked like a driver had driven off the road and back on, knocking down a lot of trees and a sign. The rearview mirror was knocked off and there must have been some front-end damage. Officers are investigating because drivers are required to stop if they cause property damage, like knocking down a sign. Police surmise excessive speed was a factor.
