Sinkhole swallows part of Jersey road

A large sinkhole is causing traffic problems along a Willingboro road.

The earth has opened up along a Willingboro, New Jersey, road -- thanks to a broken water main.

The 16-inch main ruptured late last night, opening a large sinkhole on Beverly Rancocas Road.

Police have closed all of the road's westbound lanes and one lane going east.

There's no word on how long it will take to repair the main and reopen the entire road.

But expect delays on Wednesday morning, if you have to drive through the area.
