Runaway Trailer Shears Off Fire Hydrant, Flooding Street

FAIR OAKS (CBS13) – A runaway trailer created quite a mess after it rolled down a steep hill and sheared off a fire hydrant causing a small flood.

The bizarre accident happened this morning in Fair Oaks after the homemade trailer somehow got loose and crashed into the fire hydrant.

Water gushed onto New York Avenue near Winding Way and Sunrise Avenue before the water could be shut off.

No one was injured in the accident.
