Police: Driver slams into fire hydrant, takes off

- The person driving this car in Alabama must have had a day so bad he walked away and forgot about the whole things. The problem is, that person crashed a car into a fire hydrant first.

It happened on Wednesday in Homewood, Alabama. Police said the person slammed a car into a fire hydrant and took off.

Investigators said they are classifying the incident as a hit and run because the driver simply walked away, leaving the giant mess for someone else to deal with.
