MANASSAS PARK, Va. (FOX 5 DC) - At least 400 residents of a Manassas Park neighborhood were stranded in their homes after storms flooded a creek and washed away a road early Wednesday morning.
Later in the day, municipal crews restored access to people in the neighborhood by creating a temporary roadway, but a massive sinkhole remains.
The damage was reported around 4:30 a.m. in the 300 block of Mosby Court. An officer spotted a downed tree and damage to the roadway.
Emergency crews arrived and were able to tow several vehicles out of the collapsed area. Authorities say one vehicle was washed away in the creek and another vehicle remained trapped.
Captain Frank Winston of the City of the Manassas Park Police Department says approximately 400 residents were trapped in their homes without road access out of the neighborhood.
All residents had water and electricity throughout the ordeal, Winston said.
No injuries were reported. Road crews have been called to the scene but it is unclear when repairs will be made and when access to the homes will be restored.
