CLEVELAND - A dump truck being used to fill a hole in a Cleveland street from a weekend water leak ended up falling into it.
Cleveland Water Department officials said they fixed a leak on W. 59th Street and Storer Avenue over the weekend and covered the hole with a steel plate.
On Monday, a dump truck arrived to fill the hole, but instead fell into it when the street caved in around the hole.
A person inside the truck was taken to a nearby hospital, but the person's injuries are not believed to be serious.
The water has been shut off on W. 59th Street between Storer and Denison avenues.
It's unclear when the hole in the road will be repaired.
The dump truck was pulled from the hole around 2:50 p.m.
