A possible sinkhole formed between ponds at a work site in 11762 Boggy Creek Road in Orange County, Orlando, Florida on Wednesday morning, July 3, 2019. The hole was so huge that according to the Orange County Fire Rescue, three dump trucks, two box trucks, and one pickup truck fell in.
Officials from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said the cause of the possible sinkhole is yet to be determined. Also, the vehicles fell into a man-made pool and it does not have an impact on the natural surface waters. No one was injured in the incident since there are no residential properties, roadways or public utilities near the area. Officials secured the site to ensure the safety of the workers who will do the cleanup work.
The department’s office of emergency response and central district is coordinating with its geological survey team to assess the hole and determine if it is a sinkhole or a depression and the reason it formed in the area.
