UPDATE: Woman charged for striking elementary school

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

UPDATE: A woman has been charged for striking a fire hydrant and a local elementary school back in February, then driving away.

Jessica Jay, 37, faces charges of failure to control a motor vehicle and failure to stop after an accident.

Police say Jay hit a fire hyrant and Greener Elementary on Feb. 25. The school had to be shut down for a day.


PREVIOUSLY:

A local elementary school is closed Wednesday after a car struck a fire hydrant, causing a water main to rupture.

It happened around 3 a.m. in the 2400 block of Adams Road, in front of Greener Elementary School.

When officers arrived, they found the hydrant had been hit, and an attached water main has ruptured as a result, shooting water several feet into the air.

The striking vehicle fled the scene, but was located unoccupied a short distance away. The identity of the driver has not been determined, and the incident remains under investigation.

Further investigation revealed that the Greener Elementary school building had also been struck, and may have suffered structural damage. The extent of the damage has not been determined. No one was in the building at the time.

Both Adams Road and Miles Road were temporarily closed due to the large volume of water flooding the roadways. Cincinnati Water Works responded to shut off the water, and the Hamilton County Engineer's Office applied salt, removed mud and inspected the integrity of the road.

Greener Elementary is closed Wednesday as a result of the damage and the water main break.

Anyone with information on this accident is urged to call the Colerain Police Department at 513-385-7504 or the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department at 513-825-1500.
