Sinkhole swallows 8 Corvettes at National Corvette Museum [videos]

This looks like a scene from one of the end of the world movies – a big sinkhole swallows cars and everything else near.

The sinkhole you see here opened inside the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky early Wednesday morning, swallowing eight unique cars.

The whole is roughly 6 metres deem and the diameter is over 10 metres. The triggered motion-detector alarms went off at 5:38 AM in the dome area of the museum and as it turns out this is not that uncommon in Kentucky or other parts of the U.S.

Basically what we are dealing with are underground caves and springs.

The cars that nature wanted to swallow include the 1993 Corvette ZR-1 Spyder, a 2009 Corvette “Blue Devil” ZR1, a black 1962 Corvette roadster, a 1984 Corvette PPG Pace Car, the 1 Millionth Corvette (1992 model), a 1993 40th Anniversary Corvette, a 2001 Mallett Hammer Corvette Z06, and the 1.5 Millionth Corvette (white car from 2009 car).

Good news is that no one was hurt and engineers have determined that the building is structurally solid and work us under way to save the cars from the sinkhole.

The videos below will give you a very food view what happened during the early morning and how it looked when first people got there.
