DISASTERS

1 dies when vehicles plunge into water-filled Texas sinkhole

Officials say one person has died and two others were hurt when two vehicles fell into a water-filled sinkhole in San Antonio, Texas.

San Antonio Fire Department Chief Charles Hood says crews Monday are trying to recover a body from an upside-down vehicle that's about 90 percent submerged in 12 feet of water. Hood released no details about the deceased driver.

Robert Puente, president of the San Antonio water system, has said the hole appeared after a sewer line ruptured during heavy rain Sunday.

San Antonio Fire Battalion Chief Brian O'Neil has said two passers-by rescued a male driver from another vehicle Sunday night. That driver and one of his rescuers have been treated for minor injuries.

Hood says a crane will remove the vehicles from the sinkhole.
