LEONIA - A Korean church in Leonia temporarily shut down after a water main break.

A Promise Church employee was headed to pick up parishioners for service at 4:45 a.m. when he crashed into what's called a hotbox, says a church deacon.

The accident caused water to shoot at least 30 feet into the air.

Repairs were still being made Wednesday evening.

The church is expected to reopen Thursday morning.
