FLINN SPRINGS (CNS) - A ruptured water main created a roadway sinkhole that snared an Uber car and left some nearby homes briefly without water service early Tuesday.
The flooding along Pecan Park Lane near Olde Highway 80 in Flinn Springs was reported about 4:45 a.m., Padre Dam Municipal Water District spokeswoman Melissa McChesney said.
Before authorities were able to close the street, an Uber driver tried to traverse the submerged section, winding up getting his vehicle stuck in the hole dug in the pavement by the overflow. He and his passenger were able to get out of the car safely.
The failure of the 16-inch-diameter PVC line left eight homes without water service for several hours, McChesney said.
Repair crews had the broken pipe fixed as of mid-afternoon and expected to get the road patched and reopened by early evening, according to McChesney.
