Truck hits hydrant, shuts down courthouse

The Lancaster County Courthouse was shut down for most of Tuesday afternoon after a large commercial truck hit a fire hydrant on Catawba Street and cut off the building’s water supply.
According to Police Chief Scott Grant, the truck turned too sharply from West Meeting Street onto Catawba Street, came over the curb and knocked down the hydrant.
