COCKEYSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Baltimore County officials say a school bus carrying high school students got stuck in a sinkhole that opened up after a water main break, but the students got off safely.

Police said in social media posts that the bus carrying Dulaney High School students got stuck Wednesday morning in Cockeysville. Police posted a photo online showing the rear of the bus sunken into water on the submerged section of road.

County schools spokesman Mychael Dickerson says the bus was driving slowly toward a stop, then suddenly couldn’t move. Dickerson says that he doesn’t know how many students were onboard but that they exited safely and went to school on another bus.

Police say the water main break caused the road collapse, and motorists were asked to avoid the area.
