A truck collided with a fire hydrant this morning on River Road N. near McNary Estates Drive, closing the street for nearly an hour.

A 1997 Ford Explorer struck the hydrant at about 7:28 a.m., knocking it down and dumping hundreds of gallons of water per minute onto the street, forcing Keizer Police officers to temporarily close the area off to traffic.

Officers believe the driver suffered from a medical issue that caused the wreck, so no citations were issued.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call Officer Eric Jefferson at 503-390-3713.
