CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (WPRI) — What appears to be a large sinkhole has opened up on a street in Rhode Island.

Photos sent to our sister station WPRI, show a pickup truck stuck in the hole, which is located on Hunt Street in Central Falls.

A large water main break appears to be to blame, though water officials say the cause of the break is unknown.

WPRI spoke with the truck driver trapped in the hole and the police lieutenant who helped rescue him.
