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.
