A water main burst and set a geyser of water shooting out over Glen Drive in Huntington Beach over the weekend before a section of the road completely sunk in.

John Briscoe, one of the trustees of the Ocean View School Board, said that the eight-inch main burst outside his home and caused the road to split in flood of water, mud and debris.

According to him, the incident happened sometimes late Saturday night or very early Sunday morning.

Repair crews responded just after 5 a.m. on Sunday and started working on fixing the gaping hole. Briscoe said that the sinkhole was about 15 feet wide and six feet deep.

One of his neighbors’ SUVs was parked on the edge of the crater. When the ground started to cave in, the SUV started to sink along with it, but luckily it was able to be pushed out of the way in time.

“The crater was large enough to totally swallow an entire car,” Briscoe wrote.

About 25 city employees worked to repair the hole on Sunday by draining it, cleaning it and patch it up.

“They vacuumed the street gutters for several blocks around to suck up the muck and mud including sweeping the gutters,” he wrote. “I was totally impressed by the city response.”
