(PIX11) -- Driving a big rig requires a certain amount of finesse, but there are some sharp turns that even the most experienced of drivers can't make.

That's the lesson a driver of an 18-wheeler trying to make a right turn in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Van Nuys learned on Friday. Instead of making a successful turn, the truck completely took out a light pole and fire hydrant, resulting in an immediate eruption of high-pressured water shooting into the air.

The geyser of water measured about four stories, KTLA reported.

“This was one of my worst nightmares as a truck driver,” the man who gave KTLA the video wrote.

No injuries were reported.
