-A A +A

Driver charged with DUI

By Linda Ireland

The Boy Lincoln Statue, not yet 3-years-old, and the century-old seated Lincoln statue were damaged early Sunday when an alleged drunken driver tore through Hodgenville’s Lincoln Square traffic island.
Boy Lincoln, a depiction of Abraham Lincoln at age 7 standing with his dog Honey, was dedicated to the city in May 2008 as part of the Lincoln Bicentennial Celebration. The small bronze sculpture was knocked from its base by a 2001 Ford Taurus driven by Jeremy Scott Veatch, 23, of Austin.
