First completed in 1976, the Forest Lane mural underwent extensive restoration in 2014 when Brent Herling led an army of brush-wielding volunteers. A year later, on the evening of July 19, a pickup slammed into the mural. The driver and passenger fled. According to the police report as cited by media sources, “Both occupants may have suffered head injuries because there was a lot of blood at the scene.” At press time, the driver had not been found and the mural remained in disrepair.
