RAPID CITY, S.D. — Officials in Rapid City are trying to figure out what caused a life-size statue of former President Bill Clinton to topple onto its side.
The statue is part of the “City of Presidents” project, which includes statues of former leaders on street corners in downtown Rapid City. Police found the Clinton statue lying on the sidewalk early Thursday.
City of Presidents committee spokeswoman Nancy Engler tells the Rapid City Journal that it does not appear that the statue was hit by a vehicle. She says someone might have rocked it back and forth until it tipped off its base.
Engler says the statue did not suffer a lot of damage, but it will take time to rebuild the base and put the statue back on its moorings.
