According to Lily Fire and Rescue, officials responded Friday night to a report of a single-car collision on Slate Ridge Road. When they arrived, a vehicle was found and appeared to have been a serious accident.
Upon further investigation, it was determined to be a Halloween decoration that had been placed by the owner of the property.
Slate Ridge Road is a small, rural, narrow road that gets a lot of traffic, and neighbors tell us it wouldn’t be surprising at all to them that there was a bad crash in the area.
“At night, it looks real. Especially, in the dark, foggy. There’s a lot of traffic through here. People expect wrecks, I guess,” said Terry Hawkins.
Lily Fire and Rescue said in a Facebook post that responders couldn’t tell immediately tell for sure it was a Halloween display because of poor lighting.
The homeowner has since put up some lights, along with a sign that says it’s a Halloween display.
They didn’t want to talk on camera, but said they value the Lily first responders and the important work they do.
