This was a pretty funny site. My wife, Tina, just left the house about a half hour before to pick up some pizza and chicken wings that we ordered from Hungry Howies. She was gone for about thirty minutes and on her way home she saw from a distance, water shooting up into the air! As she got closer she noticed that New Port Richey Sheriffs Officers, and New Port Richey Fire Services were already on the scene of what appeared to be an accident. The police officers and firefighters were standing in the middle of the road trying to figure out what happened. Another police officer had the couple off to the side and was interviewing them, apparently trying to get to the bottom of this fiasco. Anyway, there was two sheriffs cruisers, a state trooper and a fire truck, all blocking the middle of the road.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words? This is priceless. You can just barely make out the couples late model forest green Pontiac Grand AM in the video below. It looks to me as if the New Port Richey couple has lost control of their vehicle and swerved right into a fire hydrant. So Tina leaves the scene and immediately comes home. She tells me, “Babe, you have to go see what happened, there is a bunch of Police and Firemen talking to some people who, I guess, hit a fire hydrant – and the water is shooting up past the tree’s!” – I love things like this, and Tina knows it, so she had the keys and my sandals ready to go at the same time. I almost went out the door without my camera, but I did, and I was able to get these great shots and awesome video footage!
At first I didn’t see the green Pontiac Grand AM as it sit in the grass with a leaky fire hydrant spewing water next to it! The water from the fire hydrant was so thick, and plentiful that it totally drowned out the car. There is a convenience store next to where the accident happened, and outside a crowd of New Port Richey residents watched in awe. As I walked closer to get a better shot of the accident, one of the onlookers yelled, “I bet I will be seeing that on YouTube tonight!” He was right, without further ado – – – – here is the video:
