LOWELL -- Water flowed down East Meadow Road and rocks covered the street after a car struck a hydrant Thursday morning in Pawtucketville.

The accident happened because of slippery conditions on the side street, according to a Lowell police officer on scene.

Workers from the Lowell Regional Water Utility were cleaning up the mess around 10 a.m. Thursday.

A tow truck was removing the sedan from the scene.

The street connecting Mammoth Road and University Avenue was closed to traffic.
