'Sinkhole' on Broadway causes car to get stuck; traffic congested

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Tyler police are blocking a portion of Broadway just south of downtown due to a sinkhole that has developed.

One westbound lane of Front Street and one northbound lane of Broadway are being blocked. Texas Department of Transportation officials are on the scene and work is being done to repair the sinkhole. Drivers are advised to avoid the area for a few hours, if possible, or expect a slower trip through the area.

The sinkhole is about two feet wide by three feet deep, and a car driving over it actually got stuck in the hole.
