BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (February 12, 2014) A sinkhole collapsed part of the National Corvette Museum early Wednesday in Bowling Green, Ky., damaging eight cars.
The facility wasn’t closed down, however.
Bowling Green city spokeswoman Kim Lancaster said the sinkhole opened up at around 5:40 a.m. 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.
It’s an original part of the facility for which construction began in 1992 and was completed in 1994.
Lancaster says information is still being gathered about what exactly happened, but said it appears to be the first incident of its kind at the property.
No injuries have been reported.
