West Reading hydrant hit
WEST READING, Pa. -

Water filled a street in West Reading on Thursday, and it had nothing to do with the rain.

A car hit a fire hydrant in the 300 block of Buttonwood Street around 10 a.m.

One person in the car was taken to the hospital for treatment of a head injury, police said.

Crews were called in to stop the flow of water and repair the broken hydrant.
