THE BRONX - Crews are working to repair a sinkhole that sent one man to the hospital. 

A News 12 viewer sent in pictures of the hole shortly after it opened up on East 234th Street, between White Plains Road and Carpenter Avenue, at around 5 p.m. Monday. 

Pieces of metal are covering up the hole after officials say one man fell and had to be taken to Jacobi Medical Center with a leg injury. 

One worker said the sinkhole was likely the result of a main break, but that none of the nearby homes were affected. He also said that crews are replacing pipes, and are expecting to have the crater completely fixed and repaved Wednesday. 

News 12 reached out to the Department of Environmental Protection about the sinkhole, but has not yet heard back.
