  • Boy Lincoln Statue slammed by alleged drunken driver

    Police say a Barren County man drove a Ford Taurus through the center of Hodgenville’s Lincoln Square early Sunday, striking both statues of Abraham Lincoln.

    The Boy Lincoln Statue, dedicated in May 2008 as part of the Lincoln Bicentennial Celebration, was knocked from its base and dragged as the car entered the traffic island from U.S. 31-E (East Main Street). The base was dented and the statue, which depicted Lincoln as a child standing with his dog Honey, was severely scratched and scraped.
