A large sinkhole partially swallowed up a sanitation truck in Philadelphia, causing a Center City street to be blocked off this morning.

The hole on the 1300 block of Kater Street (near Broad Street) left the Waste Management truck stuck.

Police taped off the area around the truck a little after noon as utility crews responded to the scene. The sinkhole also appeared to swallow up some of the sidewalk on the north side of the street.

A tow truck freed the trash truck, which was able to drive away. No one was hurt.

Workers at the scene inspected water and gas lines below the street for damage.
