Another vehicle has fallen victim to a Toledo sinkhole, becoming trapped at the intersection of Adams and 15th Streets in the city's downtown Wednesday afternoon.
A witness estimated the sinkhole was about ten feet deep and two feet wide.
The minivan involved needed to be towed out of the crater after its right front wheel sank into the hole. When the van was pulled out of the hole around 5 p.m., it was clear that vehicle had been damaged.
Around 7 p.m., Toledo City crews remained on the scene in an effort to secure the area around the hole.
Crews planned to turn off the water that could be seen running under the roadway.
Officials did not know if the shut off would impact nearby businesses or homes.
This is one of several large sinkholes that have opened up in the Toledo area this year.
