Part of a Cape Coral road gave way after a water main break, sucking up the front end of a car near Chiquita Boulevard and Cape Coral Parkway.
The incident occurred when a vehicle dove into the eroded road patch while traveling westbound near the intersection of Cape Coral Parkway and Southwest 47 Terrace, Monday afternoon.
The Cape Coral Police Department advised motorists to avoid this road until further notice on their Facebook page.
According to the City of Cape Coral, a water main break caused the road to become compromised, leading to erosion of the roadway.
While the hole was getting patched, a boil water notice sign was put near the hole. The notice impacted Chiquita Boulevard South and Cape Coral Parkway West.
Currently, the road has been patched with sand but is closed off to vehicle traffic.
According to the City of Cape Coral, Chiquita Boulevard southbound is expected to reopen Wednesday afternoon or early evening. The northbound road will remain closed until further notice.
Alternative routes are advised until the road becomes stable.
