Rochester crash damages a dozen gravestones
It is unclear whether Rivard will have to pay for the damage, but it is a possibility — pending the outcome of the investigation.
Sgt. Eric Babine said cemetery officials will be evaluating the damage, especially since some of the gravestones were from the 1800s.
Rivard was wearing a seat belt and airbags deployed. He was sent to Frisbie Memorial Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.
