Promise Church in Leonia closes following water main break

Posted: Updated:

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.
