MTA Bus Gets Stuck In Sinkhole

Talk about your commute giving you that sinking feeling, a MTA bus on the B49 line got stuck in a sinkhole in Brooklyn after a water main break occurred due to the deep freeze conditions.

Here is more via a report from ABC 7 Eyewitness News:

An MTA bus was briefly stuck in a sinkhole caused by an eight inch water main break undermining an intersection in Brooklyn.

The water main break created a sinkhole about six feet in diameter at Oriental Boulevard and West End Avenue in the Manhattan Beach section.

The B49 bus was pulled out of the sinkhole in the overnight hours. The driver and two passengers were on board at the time.

Approximately 30 homes and four businesses within the vicinity are temporarily without water service.

West End Avenue and Oriental Boulevard are closed through the area.

Thankfully no injuries occurred due to the sinkhole. I would not be surprised to see more sinkholes pop up throughout the region as the temperatures continue to be so dangerously low.
