A water main break earlier this week at Prairie Village’s Corinth Square produced a sinkhole in the shopping center’s parking lot.

WaterOne officials say crews were dispatched to repair the eight-inch underground pipe on Tuesday, and when they arrived on the scene, they found two cars impacted by the sinkhole, according to utility officials.
