An intoxicated driver hit a fire hydrant on Friday afternoon, causing the driver to flip his vehicle and sent a massive rush of water to pour onto the street and Holiday Inn Express parking lot.
The Turlock Police Department responded to the report of a collision on the 3200 block of Countryside Road at approximately 4:30 p.m.
