City officials from the Office of Emergency Management and the Department of Environmental Protection visited Borough Park on Sunday morning after a large van was partially sucked into a sinkhole.
The van was parked on 39th Street and New Utrecht Avenue, where it sank through the asphalt in the middle of the night. A tow truck eventually pulled the van free.
Neighbors told News 12 that they believe the sinkhole formed due to nearby construction.
With the rough winter, there are a number of significant potholes and sinkholes plaguing the neighborhood. Do you know of some severe ones that need attention? Let us know in the comments.
