On Saturday August 21, someone rammed the locked gate at SCCi’s Run To The Mill Preserve. The impact damaged the gate and the front end of the vehicle. The vehicle continued down the driveway, ran through the parking area, and continued on the old roadbed. The vehicle then drove off a 35 foot embankment into the entrance sink to the cave. The driver and passenger fled the scene.
There appears to be no environmental damage to the cave or surrounding area. Plans are being made for extracting the vehicle. Until that time, Run To The Mill will be closed for visitation.
