COLORADO SPRINGS — A large water main break sent water and rocks shooting into the air near Union Boulevard and Vickers Drive Thursday night.

Police said at least four vehicles had their windshields broken by the flying debris.

Drivers in the area of Vickers and Union were being re-routed late Thursday night.
