BLOOMINGTON: Vehicle Vs Hydrant and Utility Pole

On Saturday night September 22, 2018 the California Highway Patrol along with the San Bernardino County Fire Department responded to reports of a solo vehicle crash near Ruth O. Harris Middle School. The crash was reported around 11:34pm at Alder Avenue and Maywood Street. The first arriving engine company reported a solo vehicle into a utility pole and a fire hydrant. The vehicle sheared the hydrant and snapped the utility pole in two. It was later determined the utility pole belonged to Spectrum Cable Company. Firefighters were able to get the hydrant shut down within 30 minutes. It’s unclear if the driver of the sedan remained at the scene. No injuries were immediately reported and the cause of the crash is under investigation.
