Annual CMC car rally takes a strange turn

On Saturday, November 10 Claremont McKenna College rally took a strange turn when a car became engulfed in flames. As part of the rally—which took place at the campus apartments at 671 E. 6th Street—college students purchased a salvaged vehicle with the purpose of allowing students to vandalize and destroy the vehicle, according to Lt. Vander Veen. It appears the damage went too far when the car was flipped over and an unidentified person put flame to gas leaking out of the totaled vehicle. No one was harmed in the incident and an arson report was taken.
