Van falls in to sinkhole in Maunawili as second hole plagues Salt Lake
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A white minivan fell into a sinkhole in Windward Oahu on Thursday night, not long after a separate sinkhole was reported on Ala Lilikoi Street in front of Salt Lake Elementary in Honolulu.
Photographs from the scene showed the rear tire of a minivan stuck inside the road on Aloha Oe Place in Maunawili. Hawaii News Now was told that a water main break may have been to blame for the incident.
The van was pulled out of the ground using a tow truck at around 8:45 p.m.
Earlier on Thursday, another sinkhole was reported in the area fronting Salt Lake Elementary, and road repairs may have an impact on traffic in the area as parents seek to drop their children off at school.
Board of Water supply said they had no reports of any outages in the Salt Lake area, and the cause of the sinkhole there remains unknown.
Ramsay Wharton will be live in Salt Lake on Friday morning with more on the sinkholes reported around Oahu. Click here to watch on a computer: http://hine.ws/live. Click here to watch on a cell phone or mobile device: http://bit.ly/hnnlive2.
