Pickup truck overturns after clipping power pole on Fairbanks Avenue

By Daniel Dahm - Managing Editor --

WINTER PARK, Fla. - A pickup truck crashed into a fire hydrant and overturned in Winter Park early Friday, causing Fairbanks Avenue to flood.

The crash forced officials to close the westbound lanes of Fairbanks near U.S. Highway 17-92.  One lane was reopened more than six hours later.

Investigators told Local 6 that the pickup was speeding just after midnight when it clipped a power pole and struck the hydrant, spewing water into the street.

Crews were working to clear the roadway.

The driver's condition was not immediately known.
