PCH Flooding Caused By Water Main Ruptured By DUI Suspect Crash
Pacific Coast Highway was shut down overnight following a crash that led to a ruptured water main that caused the street to flood, according to KTLA.
The accident happened in the 1100 block of PCH shortly after 12:30 a.m. today, when a DUI suspect was involved in a crash; "impact of the collision caused the pipe to burst, sending a huge geyser into the air." This resulted in water and mud clogging the streets and the closure of PCH from the California Incline to the McClure Tunnel.
As of just a few minutes ago the Southbound side has reopened and traffic is moving slowly through the area, however crews are using bulldozers to clear the Northbound side of water and mud. The 10 West is closed at 4th/5th Streets in Santa Monica.
