The force of the gushing water caused a portion of the asphalt street to cave in. A gray Chrysler minivan that was parked along the block had begun to fall into the hole.
A steady stream of water could be seen bubbling up from a break in the middle of the street. The water ran down the block, over sidewalks and in the street, to a storm water inlet nearby.
The Philadelphia Water Department was dispatched to the scene to turn off the water flow. The water supply line was closed around 7:15 a.m.
