Oct. 28--A fire hydrant in Hollywood that ruptured after a car slammed into it Monday morning sent water high into the air and onto the House of Blues property, authorities said.
Firefighters who received a call about the incident about 3:47 a.m. controlled the water spurt in the 8400 block of Sunset Boulevard and had the scene cleared an hour later. It was unclear how much damage the water caused to the concert venue. A representative at House of Blues could not immediately be reached.
Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Richard Bowman at the West Hollywood station said the driver was not impaired at the time of the crash. It was not immediately known what caused the driver to veer off the road and slam into the fire hydrant, Bowman added.
