TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A sinkhole has closed an intersection in central Toledo until repairs can be made.

The opening was reported Monday near the intersection of Fernwood and Detroit Avenues.

The city says the hole is too deep to be repaired by city crews, so a contractor has been called in. That contractor is expected to begin work on the hole Tuesday. The hole could take a day or two to repair, according to the city.

Toledo is no stranger to sinkholes. Last July, a water main break caused a sinkhole to open near the intersection of Detroit and Bancroft. A car fell in, but the driver made it out alive.
