BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The force from a water main break was so powerful it threw debris across the road and knocked out a car's window on Thursday. It happened around 10:00 a.m. near Polly Reed Road in Center Point.

No one was hurt.

Birmingham Water Works just turned off the water in the 1900 block of Center Point Parkway. Traffic was stopped for about an hour so crews could work on the break. One lane is now open going each direction.
The cause is under investigation.
