New York landslide

No further information immediately available.


Published Saturday, January 5, 2019

A New York City street near a construction site has collapsed, puncturing a gas line and water main that sent debris flying into vehicles.

Fire officials say no one was injured Friday afternoon in Queens' East Elmhurst neighborhood, by Northern Boulevard.

The loud explosion was followed by a messy chain reaction. The debris drilled a hole into the roof of one vehicle, shattering windows and slowing traffic amid a dusty cloud.

The cause of the collapse is under investigation. A stop work order was issued for the construction, which involved digging below the street.

A part of Northern Boulevard was shut down during the cleanup. Officials say buildings in the area were not affected.
