Rubber Duck Race potential prize car vandalized

A black eye on an otherwise pleasant weekend put on by The Summit Foundation, the vehicle, provided by Jim Hudson Chevrolet, was a potential prize in Breckenridge’s annual Rubber Duck Race. A preselected duck owner would have won the vehicle if his or her duck had finished in the top 18, this year being the festival’s 18th year. There was no winner this year. A 10-pound rock was thrown at the windshield, breaking it and scratching the hood. The rear quarter panel on the passenger side was dented when a wooden bench was thrown at the car, and the rear windshield and wiper arm were damaged, as were the driver’s side mirror and antenna arm. Jim Hudson Chevrolet estimates the total damage at $1,700. The Summit Foundation and Jim Hudson Chevrolet have each contacted their respective insurance providers, but no arrangements for repair of the vehicle have been made.The vandals also spit on the vehicle’s hood, leaving the only lead in the form of DNA evidence.
