ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque woman found herself and her car in a sinking situation after a waterline broke in the city’s uptown neighborhood.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://www.abqjournal.com/614769/news/suv-falls-into-sinkhole-near-uptown.html) that Lynn Parsons was on her way to the grocery store Saturday afternoon when her SUV fell into a sinkhole on Indian School Road.

The vehicle sunk into the street up to the driver’s side window with water flowing everywhere.

Parsons says bystanders helped get her and her belongings out of the vehicle.

Police spokesman Daren DeAguero says nobody was injured.

The car was taken out with assistance from two tow trucks.

The Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority says the road will take several days to fix. In the meantime, there may still be water outages and low pressure in the area Sunday morning.
