WOBURN, MASS. (WHDH) - A motorist escaped injury early Tuesday morning when their car fell into a sinkhole created by a water main break.

Officers responding to the intersection of Olympia and Wildwood avenues just before 4 a.m. found the back-end of the car sticking out of the sinkhole.

The driver was uninjured. He was pulled to safety by a police officer, carried to dry pavement.

The intersection was shut down as crews worked to repair the water main break.

Crews spent most of the day filling the sinkhole back in.
