Moraga Police Chief Jon King confirmed a single-car incident, which occurred around 8:56 a.m. on Oct. 24 and involved a "distracted driver" who crashed into a fire hydrant adjacent to the parking lot of St. Monica's Catholic Church on Canyon Road between Camino Pablo and De La Cruz Way in Moraga. Authorities had to reduce traffic to one lane while the East Bay Municipal Utility District began a cleanup that is estimated to cost the driver's insurance company $1,000. The only damage to the vehicle was a flat tire.
The driver, the sole occupant of the car, was uninjured.
