INDIANAPOLIS - A much-used north-side street saw problems Friday morning after a car crashed into a fire hydrant, causing a break in a water main and a minor sinkhole.
Citizens Energy crews told RTV6 a car hit the fire hydrant sometime before midnight near 56th and Meridian streets (see map below). They worked all morning to fix the water main that burst when the car struck the hydrant.
The incident led to a small sinkhole near the hydrant, crews said.
Citizens Energy spokeswoman Sarah Holsapple said as of 11:45 a.m., all lanes of Meridian were back open ater crews replaced the hydrant.
