From Matt D:
I guess someone hit the hydrant with their car and took off. The water was about 20 feet high and was turned off about 20 minutes after it broke. Took place on Speedway around Topsail – the water filled about 3 blocks of street and poured into the sand a few feet.
If you know who hit the hydrant, the LAPD wants to speak with you! Thanks to Matt for the news!
