Hydrant Sheared Off in Crash Smashes Through SUV Windshield

A hydrant sheared off in a crash Thursday morning smashed through the windshield of an SUV at a dealership in Hollywood.

Nearby streets were closed after the single-vehicle crash near Santa Monica Boulevard and Wilcox Avenue. Water gushed from the hydrant and into the street after it was struck by a vehicle, but crews turned off the supply soon after the 5:30 a.m. crash.

A fence around the dealership also appeared to have been damaged.

The driver will likely be cited for DUI, according to police.
