A single-vehicle accident on Froom Ranch Road in San Luis Obispo on Thursday afternoon sent a tower of water gushing over passing vehicles and into the street.
San Luis Obispo police Sgt. Fred Mickel said Thursday that at about 2:27 p.m., a vehicle crashed into a fire hydrant near Costco on Los Osos Valley Road.
No one was injured in the accident. Firefighters and city maintenance crews worked for about 30 minutes to shut off the water.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
The water was turned off at about 3 p.m., Mickel said, and crews and officers remained at the scene as of 3:20 p.m.
