    A driver who crashed into a Miami cemetery Wednesday night is facing DUI charges, police said.

    The incident happened at Woodlawn Park Cemetery at Southwest 8th Street and 32nd Avenue.


    According to Miami Police spokeswoman Kenia Reyes, the driver of a black Audi crashed through the cemetery's main gate, which had been sealed, and began driving around.
