Surprise!: Manhole Jumps Out Of Road As Couple Passes

Note: Some colorful, albeit appropriate language following the explosion.

This is some dashcam footage of a couple driving along in Beaumont, California when an entire manhole and concrete surround are briefly blasted up out of the road in the lane next to them. You can see a couple pipes by the side of the road also blow their tops in unison. What caused the incident? Allegedly a gas buildup ignited by an electrical discharge. My guess is Michelangelo was so high he left the gas running without actually lighting the oven, then when he realized the pizza wasn’t cooking he hit the ignite button and KA-BOOM, the sewer rats are eating burnt pizza and turtle soup tonight.
