The street along W. 167th St. near Edgecombe Ave. in Washington Heights cracked open just before 3:30 a.m. due to a possible “water condition,” according to Con-Ed and FDNY officials.

A photo from WABC-TV shows two SUVs leaning into a collapsed lane.

Officials closed Edgecombe Ave. from W. 165th St. to W. 170th St. pending an investigation. There were no injuries or evacuations, fire officials said.

In August, a BMW was engulfed in another gaping sinkhole that flooded a dance studio in the Upper West Side.

In 2014, a school bus with nine students aboard fell into another Washington Heights sinkhole after a water main ruptured on W. 164th St., between Broadway and St. Nicholas Avenue.
