Hydrant crash sprays water into power lines

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CBS 8) - A suspected drunk driver hit a fire hydrant in El Cajon Sunday morning, spraying water directly into high-voltage power lines.

Police say a woman traveling northbound on Johnson Avenue veered into the southbound lanes, crashing through the hydrant and into a power pole.

SDG&E quickly shut off power in the area as crews worked to get the situation under control. This is the second time in two years that this particular fire hydrant has been sheared off.
