LARGE SINKHOLE DAMAGES IN TOWER LADDER

WTHI reports the 20-feet deep sinkhole opened Wednesday afternoon, and it was first discovered when a fire truck drove through the intersection and hit the hole.

There were large cracks in the pavement running from the sinkhole on Ohio Street toward U.S. 41.

The Terre Haute Fire Department says everyone on the fire truck is safe, but the sinkhole damaged the truck. It is now out of service for inspection.
