A northwest Oklahoma City road is shut down after a sinkhole swallowed a car, Sunday.

Overnight crews continued early Monday morning, trying to fix the sinkhole that shut down Northwest 10th Street near County Line Road.

Crews on the scene said the goal is to replace the broken pipeline inside the sinkhole, then fill the hole up with rocks. An emergency repair order is then expected to be placed, and replacement crews will try to finally complete the sinkhole repairs.

Fortunately, no one was hurt after bystanders noticed a car completely submerged in the sinkhole early Sunday morning. The car has since been removed.

North West 10th near the sinkhole is also completely blocked off on both sides for traffic.

There is currently no estimated time on when the road will reopen.

This is a developing story.
