Traffic on Stockdale Highway was diverted after a crash Thursday morning. 

According to the Bakersfield Police Department, a car traveling westbound on Stockdale Highway lost control and hit a fire hydrant. The hydrant erupted with water, causing water to burst everywhere, leading police to re-route traffic. 

Two men and two women were in the car. One of the women was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the car was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.

Traffic has since been reopened.
