A sheared hydrant sent a 50-feet-high gusher of water Tuesday onto Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

A trash truck hit the fire hydrant on the 20000 block of PCH shortly after 7:36 a.m., said Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Don Kunitomi.

He said firefighters were working to stop the flow by shutting down a nearby water main.
