EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Streets in a residential East Grand Rapids street flooded after a water main broke Wednesday.
Thousands of gallons spilled down Elmwood Drive SE and Conlon Drive. Elmwood was turned into a river for several blocks and Conlon sustained some damage.
The spill itself didn't last long because a road crew was already on the scene. That crew had been called to reports of a water leak, which erupted in to a full main break while they were there.
The crews quickly closed the flow at a nearby valve.
A photo via ReportIt from a 24 Hour News 8 viewer showed a police car blocking traffic from traveling along the flooded street.
A 24 Hour News 8 crew arrived and saw a crew repairing the damaged pipe and road.
A former teacher accused of having inappropriate contact with a student entered a plea Monday.
The Grand Rapids Public Schools Board of Education discussed Phase 2 of the district's Transformation Plan at a special meeting Monday afternoon.
