Jeep Falls Into Sinkhole In Lexington

LEXINGTON (CBS) – A Jeep hit a utility pole and fire hydrant Tuesday morning in Lexington and eventually fell into a sinkhole.

After the vehicle hit the hydrant on Lowell Road, water burst out, softening and eventually compromising the ground. The Jeep then slipped into the hole.

Crews shut down Lowell Road between Wheeler and Whipple Streets as they worked to pump water out of the hole.

The 35-year-old driver, who was cited, was spotted walking around after the crash. He was transported to Lahey Clinic with minor injuries.
