Hungry, hungry sinkhole opens up in South Boston; tries to swallow a T bus whole

Take a look at Scott Parkinson's photo of a partially swallowed bus around 4 a.m. at Dorchester Avenue and W. Broadway, where a water main burst.

Adam reports:

This pothole has been patched over 100 times. The bump was a great reminder everyday that I was home in Southie.

Looks like this occurred at W. Broadway and Dorchester Ave., since you can see the Broadway T station in the photo.

The 171 service which operates two trips from Dudley, via Andrew, to Logan Airport. Trips at 3:50am and 4:20am.

There's other stuff running around at that hour too, generally extensions of normal bus routes that serve early morning workers.
