ORGINAL: COLORADO SPRINGS — An early morning car crash caused flooding at a Colorado Springs intersection and led to roads being closed.
According to Colorado Springs Utilities (CSU), a vehicle crashed into a fire hydrant around 4 a.m. Saturday. The crash caused a water main break that led to flooding at the intersection of Academy Boulevard and Pikes Peak Avenue.
CSU said Academy Boulevard will be down to a single northbound lane from Airport to Bijou. Pikes Peak will be reduced to a single lane in each direction at Academy.
Closures are expected for several hours Saturday while debris is removed from roads.
