Sinkhole forms at site of water main break near Fenway Park

BOSTON (WHDH) - A large water main break Tuesday has shut down several streets near Fenway Park in Boston.

Crews responded to the break around 4:40 a.m. and found water gushing into the road at Brookline Avenue and Park Drive.

A sinkhole opened up at the scene, and swallowed a city truck. The truck has since been removed.

Crews have located the source of the break. Officials say crews are expected to be at the scene working throughout the day.

Park Drive is closed at the intersection of Brookline Avenue. Traffic is being detoured, heading away from the area.

Motorists are urged to avoid the area during the evening commute.
