BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Roadways are now clear and open after a ruptured water main left streets in Northwest Bakersfield flooded.
A car accident on Friday left a power pole badly damaged. While replacing the pole, crews accidentally drilled into the water main causing the major flooding after 9 p.m. on Coffee Road just north of Brimhall Road.
Traffic was reduced to one lane, and crews worked through the night to fix the problem and clean up the mess.
There were no reports of any related damage from the flooding.
