Massive Sink Hole Swallows 8 Cars at National Corvette Museum

A sink hole took down eight cars in the National Corvette Museum early Wednesday morning.

The Bowling Green, KY museum was taken by surprise by a sink hole that took over the museum sometime before 5:30 a.m. CT. The alarm went off at 5:39 a.m. and police were called for what they originally thought was a fire.

When cops arrived, they noticed that the sink hole had swallowed five museum-owned Corvettes and three cars owned by General Motors (GM). The National Corvette Museum is in Bowling Green which is at the edge of a karst region where sinkholes are common.

Emergency personnel were able to save one car, a 1983 Corvette. Museum staff called several engineers to see whether or not any of the other cars can be saved..

GM stock is down Wednesday.
