Sink hole in York

A portion of the Susquehanna Trail was shut down Saturday afternoon after a sinkhole opened up in Conewago Township.

According to police the hole opened up around 2:30 p.m.  at the intersection of Copenhaffer Road. Police believe the sinkhole was caused by a busted drain pipe. Crews arrived on scene and began digging out the hole.

The road was shut down for a little over an hour.

Officials say the sinkhole is under control.

    I wonder where Ms.Orr flunked English. "Busted" drain pipe? The proper term is a burst drain pipe. Save the former term for arrests by police. Even that is colloquial but acceptable.
