100 customers without water after driver strikes fire hydrant

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A portion of Old Hickory Boulevard is shut down Wednesday morning and around 100 customers don't have water after a truck hit a fire hydrant.

The area near the intersection of Pettus Road in Antioch was closed around 2 a.m. when water started flooding the roadway.

Police told News 2 the driver lost control, causing him to strike the hydrant.  He was not injured in the crash.

An officer on scene said the driver was on his way to work and they don't believe he was impaired.

Metro Public Works was able to shut off the water supply, affecting area residents, after the hydrant gushed for close to four hours.

The excess water flooded the natural retention area in front of Cane Ridge Baptist Church.

Crews are still working to determine which water line was damaged, which could take some time.

There is no word yet on when the road will reopen. Sonia Harvat with Metro Water Services said the elementary school nearby is not affected.
