Sinkhole on Eglinton Ave. W. closes road near Keele St.

Toronto police are warning people to avoid a section of Eglinton Avenue West where a large sinkhole has opened up.

Police said the six-metre long sinkhole — large enough to swallow a car — opened up on Eglinton Avenue West, between Keele Street and Richardson Avenue.

Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes while the roadway is repaired.

Nobody was injured and police have cordoned off that part of the road.
