Colorado Springs Police responded to a call this morning just after 3 A.M. after a car fell in a sinkhole and had to be towed out.

The sinkhole was caused by a water main break on the 6300 block of Northwind Drive.

Police have closed off the road going both ways as utility crews work to repair the damage. Colorado Springs Utilities estimates that it will be around 8 hours before the road is open again.
