San Bernardino County firefighters worked to turn off a geyser of water after a car sheared off a fire hydrant in the northern part of Fontana on June 6.

According to authorities, at about 11:07 p.m., the driver of a black Toyota Prius was heading eastbound in the 16400 block of Sierra Lakes Parkway when he lost control of his car and hit the fire hydrant.

The driver was not injured and remained at the scene and was cooperative with the Fontana Police Department.

Firefighters were able to turn the water off at about 11:30 p.m.
