The water was flowing but the traffic was not in Echo Park late this afternoon after semi-truck clipped a fire hydrant at the corner of Glendale Boulevard and Allesandro Street. A police officer at the scene said there were no reports of injuries and witnesses reported that truck did not even bother stopping. Firefighters were getting soaked as they searched for a way to turn off the water that was spurting into the air at about 6:30 p.m. Traffic on northbound Glendale Boulevard was slower than normal after one lane of Glendale Boulevard was closed a block from the entrance to the 2 Freeway.
