A sinkhole swallowed up a milk truck this morning as it made its way down a snowy city street.

The Delgado Wholesale Dairy truck got stuck in a sinkhole along the 600 block of E Westmoreland Street in the Kensington section of Philadelphia around 9:30 a.m. Monday.

Nerdido Ricardo, owner of the Burlington, N.J.-based wholesaler, said one of his drivers was hauling about 25,000 pounds of milk and juice when the roadway suddenly gave way dropping the truck into an 8-foot deep ditch.

The driver of the truck wasn’t hurt, according to Ricardo.

After getting stuck, the hole appeared to grow larger around the rear tires of the 7-by-10-foot refrigerated truck.

It’s not clear what caused the incident.
