Part of Patton Avenue was hazardous for the morning commute Friday, after an overnight wreck involving a fire hydrant.

Officials say a car hit it around midnight, sending water pouring down the road near the Cookout, which froze in low temperatures.

Crews put down salt and sand as a precaution. No one was hurt.

That segment of Patton is now back open.
