Sinkhole opens up at National Corvette Museum, swallows cars

A massive sinkhole that opened up under a Kentucky museum Wednesday morning swallowed several vintage and rare Corvettes.

The National Corvette Museum said the Bowling Green Fire Department estimates the sinkhole to be around 25-30 feet deep and 40 feet wide.

Six of the cars in the sinkhole are owned by the museum; two others are owned by General Motors.

“It is with heavy hearts that we report that eight Corvettes were affected by this incident,” the museum said in a press release.

The museum is closed for the day.

An estimate of the cost of the damage done to vehicles and the museum has not yet been determined.
