EMMITSBURG, Md. (AP) - The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office says a statue of a World War I soldier in Emmitsburg has been damaged after a car crashed into it.

A spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office says the statue was damaged Wednesday when a driver lost control in the rain and crashed into the statue at the end of West Main Street.

The spokeswoman says alcohol or drugs did not appear to be a factor in the crash. The Frederick News-Post (http://bit.ly/1GdoZCp ) reports repairs to the statue are now underway.

The statue stands roughly 13 feet tall and depicts the soldier walking between tree stumps. His right arm is raised and holds a grenade and his left hand clutches a rifle.
