RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A water main break in Richmond left a gaping hole in the 1200 block of Admiral Gravely Boulevard Friday morning.

The break made the road buckle and sank a van that had been parked on the street at the time. The vehicle has since been towed.

City workers say they do not yet know what caused the water main break and have no time frame for it to be fixed.
