Suspected DUI driver crashes into hydrant with child and infant inside car

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A woman is being investigated for driving under the influence after crashing into a fire hydrant in Central Fresno.

It happened around one this morning in the area of Palm and Shields.

Police say a woman was driving a Mustang convertible with an infant and a young child in the car when she lost control of the car on southbound Palm, shearing off a telephone pole and hitting a fire hydrant.

Water shot into the air near the pole, which was broken at the base... but still being held up-right by the wires.

PG&E came to the scene and had power shut down in the area.

The water was shut down about an hour later.

Police say the driver suffered a bump to her head.

Neither of the children were hurt.

The woman was evaluated for DUI, but it's not known if she was cited or arrested
