A 40-foot sink hole at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green swallowed eight of the sports cars on display inside the the facility’s iconic Sky Dome Wednesday morning, said executive director Wendell Strode.
Some time before 5:30 a.m. the sink hole started to form, authorities believe and by 5:39 a.m. power in the museum was lost and police were called, he said.
When they got to the museum, emergency personnel discovered a 40-foot sink hole between 25 and 30 feet deep, Strode said. “It’s pretty significant,” he said.
Eight cars dropped into the hole, five of which were owned by the museum and three by General Motors.
Employees at the museum are still working on a list of cars involved in the incident, Strode said. The museum is about a mile from the General Motors Bowling Green Assembly Plant where the car is built.
