Sinkhole Swallows Front Yards in Pennsylvania Town

WPVI-TV(PHILADELPHIA) -- A 30-foot-wide sinkhole has swallowed the front yards of two homes and part of a road in Cheltenham Township, Pennsylvania.

A chopper for ABC's Philadelphia station WPVI-TV captured aerial video of a white pick-up truck dangling at the sinkhole's edge, as well as a tree and pieces of asphalt inside the sinkhole.

The dangling pick-up truck had been parked in a driveway, WPVI reported.

The sinkhole opened up around 4 a.m. Wednesday, according to a dispatch supervisor at the Montgomery County's Dispatch Center.

The dispatch supervisor told ABC News late Wednesday morning that police and several fire and utility crews were at the scene and working to assess damage and get the pick-up truck removed.

No injuries have been reported because of the sinkhole, the dispatch supervisor said.

What caused the sinkhole remains unknown and is under investigation, the dispatch supervisor added.
