CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Police are trying to figure who hit a popular statue in Myers Park.
Officers said someone hit it Thursday night, and then drove off without calling police.
Eyewitness News saw damage at the scene that indicates the driver likely drove up the median and hit the large stone the statue stands on.
The stone moved nearly 4 feet.
The statue is of Charlottean Hugh McManaway, who used to direct traffic at the intersection nearly 30 years ago.
"If you tried to make a wrong turn, oh, he'd fuss at you," said Al Dasher, who used to see McManaway.
"It's got to go back," he said of the statue.
