Flooding Causes Cathedral City Roadway Shutdown

The road crews are working tirelessly to put an end to the flooding caused by hydrants. They also informed a news source that on late Wednesday morning, a car suddenly got crashed into a fire hydrant while it was trying to make an illegal U-turn. This resulted in causing flooding and a large sinkhole in the accident area. The person who was driving the vehicle that caused the accident was identified as an elder man.

As soon as the man got his car crashed into the hydrant while making an illegal turn, he fled away from the scene. The communications manager for the city, Chris Parman confirmed himself that the Dinah Shore’s eastbound lane will probably be opened by 5.p.m. Parman also added that the driver would not face any criminal charges but he provided the CCPD with his insurance information. This information further has been given to CCWD for reimbursement claims.
