Slippery road conditions may be to blame for a mess early Sunday on the Northwest Side.A car struck a fire hydrant and then a building in the 4300-block of West Diversey.

Water was sent shooting into the air.

It's believed the driver was not seriously injured.

In another area on the Northwest Side, a water main broke near Austin and Giddings.

It is not believed that the break caused any major flooding, but the road was icy.
