Update: Vehicle vs. Hydrant In Arnold

Sponsored by:

Update at 1:05 p.m.: First responders, along with a tow and Calaveras County road crews, have cleared the scene of the collision in the Blue Lake Springs neighborhood after a vehicle-versus-hydrant collision in the Arnold area. The collision happened just after 11 a.m. in the 1400 block of Greensboro Way, between Spring Valley Way and El Ranchero Drive, south of Highway 4 in the Blue Lake Springs neighborhood. The CHP reports that a Jeep Liberty SUV hauling a trailer smashed into the fire hydrant, and the vehicle was stuck on the hydrant, which was gushing water. That caused flooding concerns, so county road crews were called in to put sand on Greensboro Way and Spring Valley Way to keep the rushing water from flooding those roadways. The CHP is reporting no injuries in this crash.
