Sinkhole Nearly Swallows Truck on Waller Street

A truck got stuck in a sinkhole on Waller Street between Scott and Divisadero this afternoon, and the street is now closed to traffic.

As of 4:30pm, the rear section of the Vac-Con truck was submerged under street level, while a giant crane worked to free the truck from its predicament. It didn't appear that anyone was hurt in the incident.





No word on what caused the sinkhole, nor how long repairing the street might take, but if/when we hear from SFDPW we'll update accordingly.
