An overnight crash has closed a portion of Route 222 in Berks County, according to Penn DOT.(FILE PHOTO / THE MORNING CALL) An overnight crash has closed a po The officials on Thursday will work with police after the birds took a stroll along Interstate 76 around p.m. State police arrived and shut down two lanes of traffic on the highway, causing backups for miles.A sinkhole that developed in a North Catasauqua neighborhood caused a single-family home to start collapsing, fire officials said. Chief Shawn Mc Ginley said the house in the 400 block of Buttonwood Street sat vacant for a couple years, but neighbors did report seeing the female homeowner, a senior citizen, come and go a few times in recent months.The woman likely abandoned the property when a tree fell on the roof of the house during a major past storm, Mc Ginley said.Mc Ginley expected work to be done to repair the sinkhole next week. Neighbor Thomas Eroh, however, was asked to evacuate his home with his family as a precautionary measure.
Eroh told a witness Sunday crews told him to leave, saying the house had to be torn down because part of the building had "shifted a good five feet." Paul Barna, who lives on the other side of the home and wasn't ordered to vacate, said he became aware of the gas leak when a neighbor across the street walked over and stated, 'You smell that?"They were able to quickly take care of it." Fire officials said the sinkhole has since been contained to that single property and doesn't appear to be spreading to other properties.It's being constantly evaluated by engineers and borough officials, Mc Ginley said.People in the neighborhood tell us they grew up with Holly and were close friends.State police, North Catasauqua police, the district attorney's office and the coroner's office are investigating.Borough officials, Barna added, were at the property all weekend assessing and ultimately deciding the home had to come down.
