JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A monument at Freedom Corner was destroyed after a car crash last week.

It’s unclear how the crash happened or if any drivers may face charges.

The monument was put in place at the intersection of Medgar Evers Boulevard and Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive as a dedication to the two civil rights icons.

The monument has since been removed, and all that remains at the corner is brick.
