Just before midnight on Friday, an accident at the intersection of Gordon and Springfield caused a car to smash into a fire hydrant.
A witness said they had just gone inside from their second floor balcony when they heard squealing tires and a "deafening crack."
"It sounded like an enormous building rolling into a brick wall," said Tasha Struk.
Rushing back to the balcony, Struk saw one vehicle stopped in the middle of the road and another on the sidewalk, next to a geyser of water. She said it was "clearly what remained of a fire hydrant."
An ambulance soon arrived, followed by RCMP and tow trucks. Castanet could not confirm whether anyone in the vehicles had been injured.
One of the vehicles was a taxi. It suffered dents on the passenger side and it is unknown how damaged the second vehicle is.
