    Car shears off fire hydrant in Chico DUI crash

    Chico police arrested the driver of a car that crashed into a fire hydrant on the 700 block of Nord Avenue Friday afternoon, for allegedly driving under the influence. The name of the driver has not yet been released.

     

     

     Police say the female driver sheared-off the hydrant just before 4:30 p.m. She was not injured and investigators say it's fortunate no pedestrians or bicyclists were hit because the route is heavily used by students traveling to the CSU, Chico campus. 

    Quite a bit of water flowed onto the roadway before a California Water Service worker could shut off the water for repairs.
