SAVANNAH, GA. (March 7, 2014): Downtown precinct detectives from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are seeking the public’s help in identifying a car that heavily damaged a historical park Sunday morning.

The purple or dark blue Ford Mustang fastback drove onto Battlefield Park at Louisville Road and MLK Jr. Boulevard just after midnight Sunday morning and spun around in circles on the parade ground and monument section before driving away on Harris Street.

The stones on the monument were heavily damaged and deep ruts were left in the parade ground lawn.

The car appears purple in the video but may be a color Ford calls Vista Blue.
