BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) — A car in Louisiana was swallowed by a sinkhole when the roadway collapsed, injuring the occupants of the car.

News outlets report the roadway caved in at a major intersection in Bossier City Thursday leaving a 10-foot (3 meters) deep hole in an eastbound turning lane.

City Spokeswoman Traci Landry says the two people in the car had non-life threatening injuries.

Department of Transportation and Development Spokeswoman Erin Buchanan says the cave-in was caused by water flow issues in the sewer. She says there’s water flowing where it shouldn’t.

Buchanan says the road will be fixed once the department determines where the water is coming from and how to stop it.

Drivers are advised to proceed with caution in the area.
