BOSTON — A road buckled and swallowed a car after a water main break caused major flooding in Boston early Monday morning.
A 20-inch water main that dates back to the 1870s burst in the area of Tremont and Northampton streets around 3:45 a.m.
Part of Northampton Street buckled and a black SUV could be seen wedged in the ditch. Some apartments at 808 Tremont Street were also damaged by the flood waters.
A significant amount of water gushed out into the streets for more than 30 minutes before the main was shut off.
Crews are on scene working to identify the break and make necessary repairs.
