A single-car crash has closed down Olympic Parkway in Chula Vista, west of Otay Ranch High School.
Chula Vista Police are diverting westbound traffic along Olympic Parkway at Heritage Road after a driver lost control and struck a hydrant.
A geyser of water reaching at least 100 feet into the air spouted at approximately 6 a.m. It was shut off approximately 40 minutes later.
The increased number of drivers leaving Chula Vista via Telegraph Canyon caused gridlock.
The road was reopened to traffic before 7:30 a.m.
