Cops: County landmark toppled by hit-and-run driver
Police say a hit-and-run driver is responsible for leveling a well-known landmark outside the Westchester County Center in White Plains early Sunday.
The Millennium Clock stood outside the county center for almost a decade, until police say it was destroyed around 6:30 a.m. by a driver who was possibly drunk.
Police are hoping the entire crash was caught on a nearby surveillance camera. They believe the car involved was black or another dark color and say it probably has a lot of front-end damage.
The clock was donated to the county by a Scarsdale jeweler. It had a time capsule put into its base in 2001 as part of Westchester's millennium celebration.
County police are asking anyone with information to call them at 914-864-7700.
