Heavy water pressure kept a car that fell into a sinkhole from being swallowed up.
It was a 12-inch pipe that burst at 5000 National Western Drive in Denver. Denver Water crews had to shut down a section of the road between Franklin Street and Race Court.

Denver Water expects the water main to be repaired and to have service restored by 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.
A tow truck had to pull the car out of the sinkhole so crews could make the repairs.
