On Tuesday morning in San Diego, the driver of a Toyota Camry lost control and sheared the top off a fire hydrant. As a result, the broken hydrant held the back half of the vehicle in the air for over an hour until the water was turned off.

Several men and woman were spotted fleeing the scene and authorities believe the car was stolen sometime on Monday night. Police are reportedly treating the accident as a hit-and-run. Does that make the hydrant the victim?
