A vehicle struck a fire hydrant near the corner of Alberta Way and Ygnacio Valley Rd. in Concord on Wednesday afternoon.

The collision occurred right across the street from the entrance to Mt. Diablo Self Storage at about 1pm.

Thanks to Katie for the pictures!

Somebody needs to put a club on each hydrant.

Nice display. Too bad it’s not freezing weather for ice sculptures

While I understand accidents happen, I don’t understand how people keep hitting all these hydrants. With a possible drought condition forseen for this summer, the wasted water is a needed commodity. But now that I say this, watch I will end up hitting a hydrant tomorrow. It will be my karma for saying this.

Do not aim for the hydrants! They’ve done nothing to you and don’t deserve this type of treatment.

Is it so hard to keep your car on the road? Do we need jersey barriers between the sidewalks and the roads around here?

RIP stubby

Poor hydrant! :(

9 Blame the hydrants January 8, 2014 at 3:06 PM

It’s their fault for sitting so close to the road. They just don’t GET it.

Yikes!

11 @ anonymoous here January 8, 2014 at 3:13 PM

Please let us know what happens tomorrow. :)

Probably won’t be tomorrow because Karma gets you when you least expect it.

Another Lawless hydrant meets it’s match

Getting Old. Let’s Find something New!

Thankfully the hydrant wasn’t “destroyed”. :-)

Nevermind the hydrants, save the humans! (walkers and bikers)

@ #12 ..
Oh I would never admit to it. :)

18 @hydrant January 8, 2014 at 5:28 PM

Ok hydrant, you did all that research and
You want us to total for you. C’mon,
How many comments were posted?

19 Dorothy January 8, 2014 at 5:54 PM

@Marissa – actually that is only one sofar this year. You’re thinking of all the hydrants jump in front vehicles last year. I’m sorry to see it start anew.

But regarding my order for rain dancers, really, the hydrants need not apply. Their available range is too limited.

20 DanMtz January 8, 2014 at 6:42 PM

Another easy one. My money’s on the vehicle.

21 Just sayin January 8, 2014 at 7:24 PM

Anxiously awaiting a statement from “Fire Hydrant Union” spokesperson……he usually chimes in by now

22 mika January 8, 2014 at 8:32 PM

I see they are at it again! The hydrants, that is. . .

23 Dr. Jellyfinger January 9, 2014 at 9:21 AM

Why is the Fire Dept. there? Doesn’t seem likely a fire will break out.

24 Cowellian January 9, 2014 at 11:53 AM

Maybe the County website should list hydrant casualties-to-date. This is essential information.

25 @ 19 January 9, 2014 at 1:03 PM

So have you made it without hitting one of those rascals?
