A water main break in Citrus County has caused a massive hole to open up, swallowing a white car, prompting officials to close a section of Truman Street in Beverly Hills. 

Deputies, Fire Rescue, Road maintenance and the water company are on scene at 11 Truman Blvd. 

The car was found stuck in the hole with water up to its doors but it is now completely engulfed. 

The driver of the car thought the water was simply standing water. Deputies told our crew on scene that the driver made it out safely. 



Truman is shut down from S Washington St. to S Barbour St. 

Deputies with the Citrus County Sheriff's Office say to avoid the area if at all possible.
