Many Aberdeen residents experienced a drop in water pressure after a car struck a fire hydrant on Sunday.
The single-vehicle crash happened about 10:20 p.m. near the corner of Saunders Boulevard and Bethesda Road. Gushing water from the hydrant caused a long stream to form along the shoulder of the northbound lane of Bethesda Road.
A first responder at the scene said the car hit a sign before slamming into the hydrant. He said the woman driving the car was not seriously injured.
The crash affected water pressure for communities along Saunders Boulevard. The Circle K store at the corner of Saunders and North Sandhills boulevards was also affected.
Water pressure was expected to return to normal by early Monday, according to a member of the Aberdeen Fire and Rescue Department.
