    A crash that involved a bicyclist and sport utility vehicle that struck a power pole and sheared a water hydrant sent a tower of water above an intersection.

    The 7 a.m. crash occurred on Artesia Boulevard near Mid Counties, just southwest of the 5 Freeway (map).

    Water gushed from the damaged hydrant, sending water into the street. The water was shut off about 8 a.m.

    Details regarding injuries were not immediately available. Aerial video showed what appeared to be the cyclist being treated at the scene.
