For the second time in less than a week, a driver has collided with a fire hydrant, causing a massive rush of water to pour into the street.
Shortly before 3:30 p.m., a white Pontiac Grand Prix collided with a fire hydrant while traveling eastbound on Christoffersen Parkway, near the Mountain View Road intersection.
The vehicle collided with the hydrant, ripping it off the sidewalk, before colliding with the wall that runs along Christoffersen Parkway.
Water rushed out into the street, flooding a portion of the eastbound Christoffersen Parkway lanes, and some of Mountain View Road. However, the water quickly drained to clear the road.
A resident in the nearby neighborhood said she heard a loud crash and saw a rush of water shooting into the sky.
No injuries have been reported and the cause of the accident is unknown at this time.
On Sunday, Aug. 3, a similar accident occurred when a driver fell asleep and collided with a fire hydrant on the 1800 block of South Walnut Road, also causing a large amount of water to pour from the hydrant.
And in May, an intoxicated driver collided with a fire hydrant on the 3200 block of Countryside Drive, flooding a portion of the Holiday Inn Express parking lot.
