RICHMOND, Va. -- A driver was uninjured after he drove into a hole on Strawberry Street in Richmond on Thursday.

He was later charged with reckless driving.

Strawberry Street between West Broad Street and West Grace Street was closed as a result of the incident.

The driver told CBS 6 he turned onto Strawberry Street from Broad Street, saw a cone and what looked like a puddle, and ended up in the hole.

Other officials on the scene, who requested anonymity because they were not allowed to speak with the media, said the driver drove around a worker, a cone, and another car before he drove into the hole.
