LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – A Longmeadow resident is unhurt after the roadway began to cave-in underneath his car Thursday morning.

Longmeadow Police Lt. Robert Stocks told 22News that the man was driving south on Llewellyn Street at around 7:55, when the road began to sink. A water main break had been called in in that area just 15 minutes before, and crews were in the area trying to fix it. They were able to get the man out of his car safely before the vehicle dipped further into the sinkhole.

Llewellyn Street is currently closed, and a section of nearby Converse Street was also temporarily shut down following the incident, though that busy roadway has been re-opened. Repairs continue on the water line and sinkhole.
