Crash into fire hydrant closes Route 1A in Wrentham
Wrentham police said Wednesday that Route 1A was partially closed between Winter Street and Wrentham Center because a van crashed into a fire hydrant.
They said the northbound lane will open at about 7:30 a.m., but the southbound lane will remain closed and detoured until further notice.
Police said a van traveling north on Dedham Street went off the road and struck the fire hydrant at about midnight.
The crash caused a flood and damaged the road.
Police said Joseph White, age 54, of Walpole left the scene, but he was located and arrested for drunken driving. He faces arraignment in Wrentham District Court.
