Car falls into sinkhole in Dupont Circle
Part of a street in the Dupont Circle area of Northwest Washington was closed Saturday evening after a hole opened in the pavement, partially trapping a car, authorities said.
The hole was reported about 7 p.m. near the curb in the 1500 block of 18th Street, said spokesmen for the District's fire and transportation departments.
They said a car that had apparently been parked where the hole opened was removed. Safety cones were placed in the hole as a warning, said fire department spokesman Pete Piringer.
By 8:30 p.m., the street had been reopened, said transportation department spokesman John Lisle. He said the department would send inspectors to determine the what caused the hole.
