Road Closed after Rollover Crash near 10 Freeway

 
SANTA MONICA, CA (February 13, 2019) – Two fire hydrants were sheared off early Wednesday morning following a crash on Pacific Coast Highway.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, the incident happened near 10 Freeway, at about 3:00 AM. A vehicle rolled over and sheared off two fire hydrants, sending twin geysers of water roughly 200 feet in the air.
 
It is unknown whether or not the occupants of the vehicle sustained injuries in the crash. The exact number of people involved and the extent of the damage were not immediately provided.
 
Water gushed from the hydrants and saturated the bluffs leading up to Palisades Park for about two hours before crews shut the system off. Mud from the hillside slid onto Pacific Coast Highway, delaying the cleaning and reopening of the road.
 
An investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of the crash and to identify possible contributing. Additional information will be released once it becomes available.
