HONOLULU (KHNL) - If you were wondering why traffic was slow going along Nimitz Highway Sunday afternoon take a look at this!

A car took out a fire hydrant, triggering this massive geyser. It happened in front of the Eagle Café.

The gushing water on the roadway forced drivers to dodge the flooded conditions, resulting in a soggy surprise for people along Nimitz Highway.

"I was just walking towards the store and heard an accident behind me and I just turned around I saw this blue car right behind me hit the fire hydrant and the light pole and did pretty much like a 180 and hopped on the curb there", said Jay Stantz.

No one was seriously hurt in the crash, and the roadway was reopened a short time later.
