Truck falls into sinkhole on Otay Mesa West street

SAN DIEGO -- Emergency crews responded to a sink hole Saturday morning in Otay Mesa West that was caused by an underground water main break as well as an underground sewer main break, according to city officials.

San Diego police officers were called to the 1300 block of Del Sol Lane shortly after 11 a.m., where a truck had fallen into a sink hole, according to Sgt. Ray Battrick.

But the driver was able to get his truck out of the hole and was not injured.

The breaks also caused damage to SDG&E and Verizon utilities and about 20 customers were without water service, spokesman Arian Collins said.

"Once SDG&E shuts off the gas line, it will take City of San Diego Public Utilities Department crews an estimated eight hours to restore water service," Collins said in a statement issued Saturday afternoon. "Street repairs will not be completed until other utilities are repaired as well."
