A sinkhole caused a motorcycle accident and a traffic back-up Monday in San Ysidro.
The ordeal started around 4 p.m on San Ysidro Boulevard and Cottonwood Road. The motorcycle rider hit the sinkhole and flew off his bike, according to officials. Officials say, the man complained about back pain, but wasn’t seriously injured.
The sinkhole grew bigger, shooting more and more water into the street. Police had to block off the area to traffic.
It took crews more than three hours to turn off the water. Officials say, the sinkhole was caused when a 12-inch pipe valve burst.
