Late on Tuesday afternoon a small green sedan driven by Jimmy Estes crashed through the fence at Chestnut Cemetery barely missing a pedestrian. Witnesses on the scene said Estes appeared to have lost control of the car when he suffered from a seizure. Rescuers were forced to break a window to reach the injured man. Estes was taken from the scene by ambulance as a dozen horrified onlookers watched. The westbound lane of US 98 was closed for over half an hour and traffic was detoured to the rear of the cemetery. -
