On Wednesday night, a 19-year-old driver crashed his SUV into a fire hydrant and knocked down a street lamp in the 1200 block of Magnolia Boulevard, at Ben Avenue, near Laurel Canyon.

As a result, the live wires from the pole came in contact with the water from the hydrant.

Stacey Lee Schreiber, 39, and Irma Zamora, 40, were electrocuted and died when they rushed to help. Six others were injured.
