On 11-22-2013 at about 10:45 AM a car driven by 55 year old Richland resident David Muller struck a fire hydrant at the intersection of Wright Ave. and Thompson St. Muller was driving north bound on Wright and apparently suffered some type of medical crisis. The Ford Escort he was driving left the roadway, sheared off a fire hydrant and rolled into the front yard of a residence.
Photographs below show the geyser of water created when the fire hydrant broke off. No other vehicles were involved.
Muller was transported from the scene by Richland Fire paramedics.
