Three Injured in Two-Vehicle Crash in Pasadena That Sheared Fire Hydrant

Published on Friday, May 20, 2022 | 6:03 am

Three people were injured Thursday in a two-vehicle crash in Pasadena, authorities said.

The collision was reported about 1:15 a.m. in the 2600 block of East Washington Boulevard, said Lisa Derderian of the City of Pasadena.

Paramedics transported three people for hospital treatment of “minor to moderate injuries,” Derderian said.

A fire hydrant was sheared in the crash, and one vehicle ended up on top of power pole guide lines, Derderian said.

Video from the scene showed a car badly damaged dangling from a power pole support wire, and another smashed car with extensive front-end damage.

Crews shut down the flow of water from the sheared hydrant, and utility crews were sent to handle any possible damage to the power pole.

The circumstances of the crash were under investigation.

  • Pasadena DOT panders to vocal minorities complaining about cut-through traffic, and in the process has made Washington Blvd, Allen Ave, and Orange Grove Blvd into scenes from the Fast and the Furious. This shameful inequity must end.
