We've learned new information about what caused a west Tulsa street to give way under a city of Tulsa work truck Monday.

The city says an 18-inch sanitary sewer line was defective and leaked, which caused the ground below it to cave.

The back end of the work truck was pulled into the hole as the street collapsed.

The road is still closed while they try to figure out how to fix it.
