BUFFALO, N.Y. -- City crews were out late Wednesday afternoon to begin repairing a sinkhole that opened up and nearly swallowed a small car in Buffalo's Kaisertown neighborhood.

Neighbors tell us the hole located at Willett and Griswold was just patched up in the morning, then gave way and grew into this sinkhole just as a car was driving down the street.

"This gentleman just driving down the street it opened up and swallowed his front end its underneath the street, pretty soon, it will collapse.  No one is doing anything," said Angela Melendez with the Kaisertown coalition.

One neighbor is without city water due to the sinkhole.  Witnesses tell us the driver was OK, but a little shaken up.  A city spokesperson tells 2 On Your Side repairs are being done and that work crews will continue to look into the matter.
