Crushed Pipe Opens Hole on Scranton Street

SCRANTON, Pa. -- Crews are working to replace a crushed wastewater pipe that caused a huge hole to open in Scranton.

The hole on Leggett Street is about 8 feet deep and 20 feet wide.

Pennsylvania American Water says a Scranton DPW crew was working in that area Wednesday morning and a loader they were using crushed the wastewater pipe under the road.

The 36-inch pipe is for sewer drain overflow.
