HESPERIA, CA (VVNG.com) — A semi caught fire after it collided with a car and blew out a high-pressure water valve on Main Street in Hesperia.

It happened around 8:48 a.m. on Sunday, July 3, 2022, at the intersection of Main Street and Mesa Linda Avenue, in front of the Tractor Equipment store.

Witnesses said the sedan had a green light and was trying to turn left onto Mesa Linda from Main Street. The semi honked before running through the light and crashing into the vehicle.

After the impact, the semi-trailer continued to travel several hundred feet, overturning a fire hydrant and a high-pressure water valve along the edge of the sidewalk.

Debris from the semi was strewn across the east side of the roadway before eventually coming to rest in front of the Beyond gas station where it caught fire.

Water from the burst lines sprayed an unknown amount of water onto the roadway continuously for about an hour before the valves were closed.
