A fire hydrant broke on the corner of Sixth Street and Hearst Avenue at approximately 8:27 a.m, according to Berkeley Fire Department spokesperson Keith May.
A 40-foot geyser rose as a result of the broken fire hydrant, as first reported by Berkeleyside. May said that a man driving a U-haul truck misjudged a turn and ran into the fire hydrant.
The water has been turned off and the East Bay Municipal Utility District will replace the hydrant, according to May.
