The butterfly sculpture that adorns a median near Central Park in Saugus was packed up and taken to Santa Clarita City Hall on Monday after it was hit by a car.

The collision occurred shortly before 9:30 a.m. Monday. A motorist driving on Bouquet Canyon Road damaged the sculpture placed on the median near the south end of the park, said a Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s deputy.

“It is being removed from the median for repair,” city spokeswoman Gail Morgan said Monday.

Damage was not apparent in a casual observation.

The sculpture of a Western tiger swallowtail and, beside it, a yerba santa plant, were unveiled in November 2012 at one of the park’s entrances on Bouquet Canyon Road.

The sculpture is built largely using recycled motorcycle parts.
