Apartment District - (BTT) "It was like a scene from a movie!" That is what one witness recalls from the accident. Slamming into the hydrant doing 50, the taxi cab came to an immediate stop (obviously.) The initial impact sent the hydrant toppling over and water spewing into the air. "It came as a great relief," one other said of the incident. "It's like 100 degrees out here. Time to go play in the water!" A crowd of kids soon surrounded the scene.
