Did You See That Sinkhole in the Richmond District?
Original story 9:24 a.m.: It was huge. Sometime around 5:30 last night -- during the start of rush hour -- a street in the Richmond District started caving in all by itself, creating a hole big enough to fit a car, well at least a smart car.
According to Richmondsfblog, a car drove over the intersection of Lake Street and 2nd Avenue and then a few minutes later, the concrete just split open.
KTVU reports that the 15-foot sinkhole was probably caused by an old 21-inch sewer line failure.
Who says the Richmond isn't exciting?
