Title

Car in hole on Oxford Road close to the intersection of Old Hope Road

Description

"Why me? This is the question this motorist was asking himself a few days after his car dropped into a hole along Oxford Road, close to the intersection of Old Hope Road. There was a busted water main and although the Water Commission had attempted repairs, they had not been completed. The hole was still uncovered when the car dropped in. A tree was later placed in the hole to warn other motorists."
