WEST LINN, OR (KPTV) -

The streets of Marylhurst Drive and Midhill Circle in West Linn were filled with water on Thursday night after a driving mishap by a Walmart driver.

West Linn Sgt. Dave Kempas says the Walmart delivery truck struck a fire hydrant and dragged it 75 feet.  The truck also drove through a yard causing damage.

The driver then drove another two to three miles before being stopped by police. The driver will be charged with reckless driving and hit-and-run.

Kempas says the driver is inexperienced and "may not have known" he struck the hydrant.

The water has been turned off and public works is attempting to repair the damage.
