Authorities in Florida said multiple trucks were swallowed up by a pair of holes that opened up near the Orlando International Airport early on Wednesday. According to Spectrum News 13, the watery holes swallowed more than half a dozen large construction vehicles, including several trucks and canisters.
As of late Wednesday morning, officials hadn't determined whether the holes were actual sinkholes or a depression caused by something else, reports Spectrum News 13. Investigators are still trying to figure out why the ground collapsed at the property of C&A Trucking.
No injuries were reported in the collapse. Sharing pictures from the site of the holes, Orange County Fire Rescue said that trucks were swallowed by a hole in the road, and one driver managed to get out without any injuries.

According to Click Orlando, the owner of the trucking business said the draining of a lake on a nearby property might be what led to the ground collapsing. Crews will begin trying to get the trucks out after the ground settles.
