Cleveland, Ohio. 16th August, 2012.

An SUV fell into a sinkhole Thursday morning on the city’s east side.

According to Cleveland Water Department’s John Goersmeyer, there is a water main break in the area that caused the sinkhole.

Water department crews and Cleveland police were called out to East 65th and Fleet Avenue to remove the vehicle.

The water department said the hole is eight-feet wide by 12-feet deep. Right now crews are digging to make the hole deeper to get to the water main pipe.

Cleveland water said it is an eight-inch water main that broke.

Six homes and four businesses are without water as a result of the main break.

East 65th Street between Fleet and Sebert is expected to be closed for the next three or four hours.

There were no injuries reported.
