Driver crashes into water valve in Fresno Co. after falling asleep at wheel

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A crash led to a flooded field in Fresno County on Wednesday night.

It happened just before 11 pm on Belmont Avenue near Del Rey.

California Highway Patrol officers say the driver of a Hyundai fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into a water valve.

Gallons of water flooded a peach orchard and soon spilled onto the shoulder of Belmont.

A Fresno city worker came out to shut off the valve a few hours later.

The driver was not hurt.
