SAN JOSE (KCBS) — An early Friday morning car crash damaged and cut the main water supply for an elementary school campus in San Jose, authorities said.

The water main outside Terrell Elementary School on Pearl Ave. was badly damaged after it was struck by Lincoln Town Car that had just hit a car carrier that was turning into the school’s parking lot. The impact sent the car directly into the water main.

“Three people were in the Lincoln Town Car. Two of them fled the scene. One stayed with the car. We did find the two that fled the scene all three have been transported to the hospital,” San Jose police Sgt. Jacqueline Lonero said.

The extent of their injuries were not known.

The San Jose Water Company is working to restore the water supply to the school while the San Jose Unified School District told KCBS that classes will be held. They said portable toilets were being brought to the school.
