Waters Flow in Accident's Wake

Posted February 9, 2007 5:35 p.m. EST

— Police charged a woman with hit-and-run and driving with a revoked license after her car knocked over a fire hydrant and water poured down Strickland Bridge Road.

Natasha Hurley of Fayetteville was arrested near her home, about a mile from where her SUV hit a mailbox and then slid sideways into the fire hydrant in the 2600 block of Strickland Bridge, police said. They said she had been driving too fast and lost control of the vehicle.

Water company workers shut down the flooding and made repairs, and storm drains handled most of the water, officials said.
