Cemetery tombstones and monuments damaged by out of control driver in Peru

Posted by wlpo on June 9, 2015

A house, tree and tombstones were all hit by an alleged drunken driver in Peru.

Peru Police think Peggy Waranka of Princeton was southbound on Plank Road Monday night just before 10 when she drove into Veteran’s Park Cemetery and hit several tombstones and monuments next to the flag pole. She continued on through the backyard of a house on Schuyler Drive where she damaged landscaping and hit a tree. Waranka finally stopped when she hit a home.

She was arrested for DUI and taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru.
