Sinkhole Claims Car
HAVERFORD TOWNSHIP, PA-March 7, 2006 (WPVI) -- A car fell victim to a huge sinkhole that opened up after a water pipe burst along a Delaware County street.
It happened about 2:15am along Langhorne Avenue near Darby Road. The sinkhole opened up after a 6-inch water main ruptured down below the street.
Police first noticed the water in the street and notified the water company. Workers stopped water service to about 25 homes along Langhorne Avenue between Darby Road and Valley Road.
The Volkswagen that tumbled into the sinkhole had to be towed out before repair work could begin.
The repair efforts for the water main will take several hours. Road repairs will take even longer.
