Hit-and-run damages hydrant

A fire hydrant was knocked over by a hit-and-run driver on Google property Tuesday, July 9, creating a temporary fountain that spurted about 20 feet into the air until fire crews shut it off.

The incident occurred at about 4:30 p.m. at the Google building located at 1400 Crittenden Lane, according to Shino Tanaka, public safety and community coordinator with the Mountain View Police Department. It took the fire department until about 5:55 p.m. to stop the water gushing from the ground.

Because the incident occurred on Google property, the search company's private security will be handling the investigation, Tanaka said. At deadline, no Google representatives had returned calls to say if there were any witnesses to the crash. No one was reported to have been injured in the incident.
