The Hendersonville “H” at downtown’s northern gateway is in the shop for repairs after a vehicle damaged it in a rollover crash Thursday evening at 6:45.
A 2000 Lincoln traveling west on U.S. 64 ran the red light, T-boned a 2016 Honda Pilot, causing it to flip once and strike the heavy-duty sign with its signature copper “H.”
Both drivers were taken to the hospital by ambulance.
“The driver of vehicle is fine. She was just in here to pick up a copy of the report,” said police Capt. Bruce Simonds. He did not have a condition of the Lincoln driver, who got out of the vehicle and was walking around after the crash.
Charged with running the stop light and having no driver’s license was Cyril Edwin Boyce, 32, of Hendersonville.
A city public works crew removed the sign, which is bolted to two granite slabs weighing a half-ton each. It’s under repair.
