fire hydrant crash
Original post made
on Mar 12, 2012
Last Thursday night, a small pickup truck apparently ran the stop sign at the corner. Of Muirwood and Clovewood, lost control, hit the fire hydrant and knocked it down, causing a geyser of 50+ feet that lasted a full half-hour and flooded the street before the LPFD or city staff were able to turn it off. With all of this activity and damage, I didn't see a mention in the paper of the incident or the driver who caused it. Is this Worthington the taxpayers foot (all the thousands of gallons wasted, the hydrant replacement, the firefighters' time) or does the party at fault pay?
