A Hit-and-Run Driver Made a Mess in Williams

 [slideshow_deploy id=’54679′]

An unidentified driver hit a fire hydrant on ‘E’ Street in Williams, Thursday December 12th, 2013 spilling over 100,000 gallons of water onto the streets.

At about 5:00 p.m. the Williams Police and Fire Department were dispatched to the parking lot next to El Toro Loco Market, where it appeared a driver backed into a fire hydrant then fled the scene.

As the water filled the streets, the runoff posed a significant threat to some nearby businesses.

“The water was coming a bit too close to comfort,” said Andi Armstrong, who owns a business on 7th Street. “The water was just a few feet from my door on the sidewalk.”

Williams Public Works Water Department turned off the water and immediately repaired the hydrant.

The estimated cost of the loss of water and repair costs totaled over $1800 as reported by the City of Williams Water Department.

Typically Williams has one Fire Hydrant incident each year, as reported by the City of Williams Water Department.

The suspect vehicle is a black, Dodge Neon, 4-door. The driver described as a Hispanic female in her twenties.

“The suspect vehicle should have sustained damage to the rear of the vehicle,” said Williams Police Sergeant, Ed Anderson, “Support from the public, in locating the driver, would is greatly appreciated.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Williams Police Department at (530) 473-2661.
