Accident in Lake Forest: Car Suspended in Mid-Air by Water

Orange County, California – Last Saturday, June 8th, an unusual accident in Lake Forest left everyone astonished when gushing water from a fire hydrant, dislodged during a collision between two cars, suspended the rear of one of the vehicles in the air.

The Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) reported that the accident occurred in Lake Forest, California. Emergency calls started pouring into the fire department around 6:30 p.m., with witnesses reporting that a vehicle was suspended in the air and that there might be people trapped inside.

Although the exact details of the accident remain unclear, it is known that the pressure of the water shooting from the dislodged fire hydrant was so strong that it managed to keep the rear of the vehicle suspended about 7-8 feet above the ground. This impressive demonstration of the water’s force left bystanders and the responding firefighters astonished.

The Orange County firefighters quickly responded to the scene. Fortunately, both drivers managed to exit their vehicles before the first responders arrived. Paramedics on site treated the two individuals involved and transported them to the hospital for medical attention. According to authorities, one of the victims required “paramedic-level care.”

Firefighters worked diligently to isolate both sides of the fire hydrant and access the shut-off valve, which was located adjacent to the vehicle. Once they managed to cut off the water flow, they safely brought the car back to the ground.

We’ll mark this down as something you don’t see every day,” commented the OCFA in a post on X, highlighting the uniqueness of the incident.

The accident in Lake Forest serves as a reminder that the most unusual situations can occur at any time and place. The effectiveness of the firefighting team and the cooperation of the citizens were crucial in resolving this extraordinary emergency. As we move forward, it is essential to maintain and improve our road safety measures to prevent similar incidents in the future and protect the lives of all involved.
