SOUTH AMBOY, N.J. (AP) - Residents of a central New Jersey street where a large sinkhole developed overnight will not be allowed back in their homes until at least Wednesday morning.

Three homes in South Amboy, including one two-family home, were evacuated after the sinkhole on Gordon Street was discovered around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. Town officials say the residents who live in those homes are staying with relatives, and it doesn’t appear that the homes are in any imminent danger.

No injuries were reported in the incident. But officials say one vehicle was totaled after it fell into the sinkhole, which was caused by a water main break.
