A truck driver caused havoc in Cannington today after driving into a main pipe at Westfield Carousel.

Water shot out of the burst pipe in all directions on Monday as the shopping centre’s management scrambled to get on top of the leak.

Footage shared to WA Incident Alerts on Facebook shows a truck parked within the undercroft outside the mall, while litres of water rain down on the vehicle from all angles.

The area was immediately inundated with water and remained flooded for hours.

A Water Corporation spokesperson told The West Australian they had not been contacted in relation to the incident as it was on private property.

Staff at Westfield Carousel did not respond to requests for information.
