Police: Vehicle crashed into Nativity on purpose
FAIRHAVEN, Mass.—Police in Fairhaven say whoever crashed their vehicle through a Nativity scene in a public space in town did it deliberately.
Sgt. Kevin Kobza says tire tracks indicate that either a pickup truck or SUV jumped two curbs and drove head-on into the creche, dragging the wreckage including Joseph, Mary and the infant Jesus to the other side of Benoit Square before taking off early Monday morning.
Police tell the Standard Times (http://bit.ly/tWHr59) a person delivering newspapers noticed the mangled manger and called police at about 4:30 a.m.
Other decorations, including a Santa Claus, reindeer, and Frosty the Snowman, in the area were untouched.
Volunteers from the North Fairhaven Improvement Association, which maintains and decorates the square for the holidays, repaired the crèche.
