LOUISVILLE (AP) - A section of a street in downtown Louisville has collapsed with officials saying a water main break caused the cave-in.
Louisville Water Company spokesman Vince Guenthner told The Courier-Journal that a 20-inch main broke at Seventh and Hill streets sometime early Monday morning.
The utility has shut Seventh Street between Oak and Hill streets. It has also shut Magnolia Avenue between Fifth and Sixth streets.
Guenthner said a repair crew is on the scene. WAVE-TV in Louisville reports that there is no estimate on how long the repair will take or when the streets will reopen.
