A semi truck backed into a fire hydrant, shearing it and causing water to shoot into the sky in the 900 block of East Route 66 Sunday night.

The accident occurred near The Donut man, 915 E. Route 66, just before 11:30 p.m.

Los Angeles County Fire Fighters attempted to shut off the water, but were unable to. Glendora Police summoned a Water Division representative from the city to shut off the geyser, said Sgt. Mike Randazzo of Glendora Police.

None of the nearby businesses were affected by the flowing water, Randazzo said.

No injuries were reported.
