Free car wash pops up in southwest Houston

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A broken sprinkler line turned into a free car wash for one woman in southwest Houston.

Skyeye HD was flying back to the airport when the pilot noticed water spraying into the air in the 4400 block of Wuthering Heights at Hiram Clarke. Skyeye HD went over to investigate and noticed the problem was a broken sprinkler line that was shooting water about 15 feet up.

But we weren't the only ones to notice the gushing water.

Seconds later, Skyeye HD saw a white van pull into the downpour and proceeded to slowly allow the water to wash some of the grime off her vehicle. The driver then backed up to give her white van a second wash.

The driver then pulled forward so she wouldn't get wet and got out the vehicle. After checking to make sure the van was cleaned to her liking, she drove off into the sunrise.
