LEESBURG, GA (WALB) - Society Street in Leesburg is still closed Friday night after part of the road collapsed on Thursday night.

Just after 10 p.m., a culvert collapsed, taking a car with it. Only the driver was in the car and she was rescued and taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Firefighters say that a two inch water main broke and undercut the roadway and that the weight of the car driving over the culvert caused it to collapse.
