St. George Police said the sinkhole formed on 100 South between 800-900 East due to a water pipe breaking. The area is near Utah Tech University.

The front end of a car went into the hole, but nobody was injured.

100 South is closed in the area for the rest of the night; police do not yet know whether it will be reopened in the morning.
