Fire hydrant sheared in rollover crash, Trader Joe's flooded in La Brea

LA BREA, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A driver involved in a multi-vehicle rollover crash in La Brea struck a fire hydrant, prompting flooding in a nearby Trader Joe's early Monday morning.

The accident, which involved three vehicles, happened near the intersection of South La Brea Avenue and West 3rd Street just after 1 a.m.

Water was pooling in the store as firefighters worked to turn off the hydrant, which has since been shut off. It is unclear when the store would reopened.

At least one person was taken to an area hospital in unknown condition.

The cause of the crash has not yet been determined, but police are investigating whether one of the drivers ran a red light.
