WKBN Staff – YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) - Crews are working to repair a sinkhole in Youngstown.

The hole opened up Wednesday afternoon on Steel Street at Butler Avenue. It is about three-foot wide and 10 feet deep.

An Ohio Wine truck was driving in the area when the road gave way. The street was closed while crews worked to find a steel plate to put over the hole, which is near a manhole cover.

It is expected to be repaired Monday.
