CIRCLEVILLE – A one-vehicle crash into a fire hydrant has caused a large water main break near the intersection of Clark Drive and Forest View Court.

Clark Drive is closed in both directions while crews work to remove the vehicle and close off the water main.

Crews estimate water has been pouring out of the main at a rate of about 1,600 gallons per minute for more than an hour since the crash and is causing problems with access to the valve.

More details will be published as they become available.
