HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - A large truck has been pulled out of a sinkhole on Marlin Drive, in the Camelot subdivision in south Huntsville. This area is just east of the intersection of Bailey Cove Road and Green Mountain Road.
The truck got stuck about 8:30 a.m. Thursday. WHNT News 19's Alexandra Carter talked with the driver, who wasn't hurt, just surprised.
A recovery vehicle came to pull it out of the hole, but crews had to use caution because the second vehicle was also at risk of collapsing in the hole when it got too close.
Crews say it looks like the sinkhole was caused by an underground stream from Wednesday's heavy rains. Crews say they could be on the street for one to five hours as they fill in the hole with asphalt.
