Car In Sinkhole In San Francisco's South Of Market Neighborhood

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) -- A car was partially submerged in a sinkhole in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood Tuesday evening.

A bystander took photos of the black car stopped on Mission and New Montgomery streets at about 6 p.m.

The front driver's side wheel of the vehicle, a black Chevrolet, was in the hole in the middle of the road.

Traffic had come to a standstill and emergency crews were on the scene. Muni buses were stopped at the intersection.

A crowd of pedestrians gathered around the intersection, many heading home on their evening commutes.

The car was removed from the hole, but the road remained blocked off Tuesday night.
