A large sinkhole that trapped one woman in her car in southwest Houston yesterday is now all patched up.

The woman says she saw the water on Fountainview and Fairdale was a little high, but thought she could make it. Little did she know it wasn't just water. It was a huge hole created by a water main break.

The water main break was first reported this weekend. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

City crews came out and made the repairs to the water main and the sinkhole.
