Pictured is the scene of the incident Thursday morning in Waterloo.

A minivan struck a fire hydrant shortly after 10 a.m. Thursday at the corner of Fourth Street and Church Street in Waterloo. No injuries were reported in the incident.

City crews turned off water from Church Street to Moore Street and on each side of Fourth Street to repair the broken hydrant.

Police said Leonard Moody, 64, of Waterloo, was visiting City Hall but apparently forgot to put his minivan in park, resulting in the vehicle rolling in reverse across Fourth Street and into the hydrant.
