Sinkhole

Sinkhole

Heavy rains and flooding this weekend may have contributed to a sinkhole that was discovered this morning in the parking lot of the AT&T building on Dillard Street. The hole, which was caused when a large drain pipe collapsed, almost swallowed an AT&T van. An official with AT&T and a local wrecker service are pictured, waiting on utility officials to determine what types of pipes are in the area near the sinkhole before removing the vehicle.
