Water Main Break Causes Huge Sinkhole in Northeast D.C.

A huge sinkhole that nearly swallowed a truck appeared in the streets of northeastern Washington D.C. in the late afternoon on Tuesday.

A D.C. Water spokesman reported that the sinkhole that—nearly as large as both lanes of the road on 13th Place NE near Farragut Place and Faraday Place—was caused by a water main break that undermined the integrity of the ground underneath the road.

The truck that fell into the hole was removed but was heavily damaged.

After the water main break, 25 homes in the area lost water service. Water officials were still working to restore service late on Tuesday.
