AGAWAM (WGGB) – An overnight accident on Garden Street in Agawam has resulted in the death of one woman.
According to Agawam Police, that woman was driving down Garden Street when she struck a fire hydrant shortly after 1 o’clock Sunday morning.
The hydrant cracked open, pouring significant amounts of water into and under the street. That water compromised the roadway and caused a sinkhole to open up. The Town of Agawam will now have to to repair that sinkhole. No word on how long those repairs could take.
State Police were called in to assist the investigation into the accident. So far there is no word on the circumstances that may have led to it.
