Fire Hydrant Spews Water in Mission Valley

A delivery truck driver ran over a fire hydrant in a Mission Valley parking lot on Monday, causing a gush of wire to shoot in the air for about 30 minutes.

The incident happened just before 2 p.m. outside an office complex in the 3700 block of Camino Del Rio South.

San Diego firefighters and San Diego police officers responded, but the water wasn’t shut off until 30 minutes later, when a city work arrived to turn it off.

It wasn’t known what caused the delivery motorist to run over the fire hydrant.
