An accident involving a fire hydrant slowed the Thursday morning commute for some Muni riders around 5 a.m.

A car hit a hydrant at 23rd and Mission Streets sending water shooting into the air, and right onto Muni powerlines.

Muni had to temporarily re-route two bus lines for about an hour while things get cleaned up.

Police are looking for the driver who hit the hydrant they say the vehicle mostly likely has serious damage to it.
