Hydrant crashes through window at Tiverton eatery

Posted: Updated:
TIVERTON, R.I. (AP) - When a fire hydrant crashed through the window of a Rhode Island restaurant managers said for the first time they were glad they had no customers.

The Herald News of Fall River reports that an SUV struck the hydrant at about noon Wednesday, launching it 60 feet through the window at China Gourmet, where it wiped out a table and two chairs before crashing into a beverage cooler. The hole in the glass was two feet above the ground.

No one was hurt.

There were no diners inside because the restaurant had not opened for the day, but the hydrant shook up the staff.

Lihua Zhang says "We were in here, making food, then ... Boom!"

The SUV driver's name was not released because the investigation is ongoing.
