Water main break Expressway

OKLAHOMA CITY – Crews have controlled a high-pressure water main break that caused a traffic hazard on N.W. Expressway Monday afternoon.

Witnesses in front of the Bob Moore Buick GMC dealership said the water was shooting across all lanes of traffic like a geyser.

“Water started coming up here on the asphalt, all of a sudden ‘boom!’ There it goes, a rainbow of water on the Northwest Expressway,” Chad Richardson said, Bob Moore Buick GMC salesman.

Authorities have not said what may have caused the break.

No serious injuries were reported.
