Sinkhole Closes Portion of Ocean Park Blvd.

A nearly 200-foot-long sinkhole on Ocean Park Boulevard in Santa Monica, caused by a broken water main, closed the road Sunday for several blocks, authorities said.

The 12-inch pipe broke about 8:30 Saturday night, washing away soil and causing the boulevard to collapse between Euclid and 14th streets, Santa Monica Police Sgt. Dan Salerno said.

The boulevard was closed Sunday evening between Lincoln Avenue and 14th Street, as was part of Euclid, Salerno said.
