Car swallowed by Hoboken water main break


first_img× HOBOKEN–According to city spokesman Juan Melli, a car was “swallowed up” by Hoboken’s early morning water main break on Fifth Street and Willow Avenue on Tuesday. “When there is a water main break the soil erodes creating a cavity that just swallowed up the car,” said Melli. “It sunk in.”According to the spokesman, the water main broke around 3:39 a.m. Suez Water began repairs once the car had been removed.According to the city’s website “Willow Ave is closed south of 6th Street. NJ Transit buses are running on Clinton Street, however the Willow Avenue route is operating on a detour along Washington Street. A boil advisory is not in effect.”Melli said that the nearby Mustard Seed School was closed for the day as the break occurred on the corner where the private Christian school is located.
