Flatbed Truck Slips Into Sinkhole in San Francisco

All lanes have reopened on Seventh Street between Townsend and Brannan streets in San Francisco after a sinkhole swallowed a truck Friday morning, a San Francisco Public Utilities Commission spokeswoman said.

Seventh Street was closed for hours on Friday between those two streets as crews worked to fill in the sinkhole, according to Betsy Lauppe Rhodes, a spokeswoman for the SFPUC.

The truck was removed earlier in the day and the sinkhole has been filled in and cordoned off, Rhodes said.

The sinkhole, estimated to be 15 feet by 10 feet, opened up in the parking lane off Seventh and Townsend streets around 5:18 a.m., according to Rhodes. No one was injured in the incident.
