DOWNEY: Power Pole Hydrant Crash

*Time* – 10:00pm 6.16.18 *Location* – 12100 Blk Rives, Downey *Handling Agencies* – DFD. DPD, DWP
A speeding truck crashed into power pole and fire hydrant causing the power pole to be severed and left hanging above the truck. Unknown if the driver left or stayed at the scene. The door of the truck could be seen open as water from the hydrant continued to flow after attempts by firefighters to shut it off. DWP arrived to start the process of replacing the pole. It does not appear that power was lost in the area at the time of the crash. Power will be shut down to fix the pole. As of midnight the water could still be seen flowing down Rives and into the adjoining streets.
