A hit-and-run incident in Highland Park last week turned into more of a hit-and-gallop. Or maybe a hit-and-canter.
It happened sometime between 7 and 8:30 p.m. on Friday night in the 4300 block of Livingston Avenue, when the owner of a parked black 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe noticed some damage to the doors on the passenger side.
The SUV owner suspected the damage was caused by a horse-drawn carriage carrying passengers looking at Christmas lights, and indeed, the height of the marks on the Tahoe suggested that was the case.
Yet the carriage fled the scene without leaving any information. That’s more than simple holiday horseplay.
