Sinkhole collapses part of Corvette Museum

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — A sinkhole collapsed part of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green on Wednesday, damaging at least six cars but not shutting down the facility.

Bowling Green city spokeswoman Kim Lancaster says the hole opened up at about 5:40 a.m. CST Wednesday, setting off an alarm and a call to the fire department.

The hole is in part of the domed section of the museum, and that area will remain closed. That's an original part of the facility for which was completed in 1994.

Lancaster says information is still being gathered about what exactly happened, but this appears to be the first incident of its kind at the property. The museum sits on an area containing many of Kentucky's longest caves.

No injuries were reported in the incident.
