Sinkhole swallows Corvettes

A massive sinkhole in western Kentucky opened up early Wednesday morning below the National Corvette Museum, swallowing eight rare Chevrolet Corvettes on display there. No one was hurt in the incident, which was recorded at 5:44 a.m. at the Bowling Green, Ky. Six of the cars - a black 1962 Corvette, a 1984 custom pace car from the IndyCar World Series, the 1 millionth and the 1.5 millionth ever built, a 1993 ruby red 40th anniversary Corvette, and a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 - had been donated. Two others - a one-off design concept of a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and the original 2009 ZR1 "Blue Devil" show car - were on long-term loan to the museum. The sinkhole measured about 40 feet across and was about 30 feet deep. The museum remained closed Wednesday as engineers assessed the safety and stability of the buildings and property.
