A 4-foot-deep sinkhole that formed after a water main ruptured in an Escondido neighborhood Tuesday morning swallowed a car parked along the street, filling the car with muddy water that could be seen pouring from its windows.AutoPropertySubrogation
Water flooded the streets, surrounding parked cars and even seeping into at least two homes, the city confirmed.
Resident Juan Martinez said water flooded his five bedroom home forcing him and his family to move out while repairs are made. He said they also have a newborn and a grandmother going through chemotherapy.
This was not the first instance of a water main break in the City of Escondido.
