    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The statue of Hugh McMannaway is back on its perch in Myers Park.

    The statue was resurrected at the corner of Queens Road and Providence Road Friday morning.

    In August, police said a driver ran into the landmark and kept going.

    McMannaway was an eccentric character who lived in that area until the 1970s.

    He was best known for wearing a yellow raincoat and waving a dish towel at drivers as they passed through the intersection.
