LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A driver in a Jeep crashed into a county art installation Saturday, sending 4,000 pounds of steel flying down the road, police said.
"It'll be removed for the next couple of weeks, that way the artist can assess what is going on to see if he can rebuild that piece," Clark County cultural supervisor Mickey Sprott said.
The crash happened about 7 a.m. on Dec. 11. The driver exited the 215 Beltway at Eastern Avenue moments before the crash, police said.
Dashboard camera video showed the Jeep exit the highway, then plow into a massive steel head. Nevada Highway Patrol said they didn't believe the driver was impaired and said she was expected to be okay.
The driver damaged one of two steel heads situated at the median. Each is about 5 feet wide and 6 feet tall, worth more than $17,500.
The artist, Luis Valera-Rico, will assess the damage.
"He's going to recreate or fix that artwork," Sprott said. "We're looking at two to three months before we see the heads back."
