Eight cars damaged by sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum! - Wed 12 Feb 14 18:14

Image

A sinkhole opened up this morning beneath the Skydome at the National Corvette Museum, Bowling Green, Kentucky, swallowing a total of eight cars on display, including two on loan from General Motors.

The sinkhole, which opened up at 5:40 a.m.(est), is reported to be 40 feet in diameter and up to 30 feet deep, and the museum has called in a structural engineer to determine if the sinkhole poses any additional threat to the property. For now, the National Corvette Museum, with the exception of the damaged Skydome, remains open to the public.

According to the museum, the cars damaged in this morning’s event include a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil,” both on loan from General Motors, along with a 1962 Corvette; a 1984 PPG Pace Car; a 1992 “1 Millionth” Corvette; a 1993 40th Anniversary Corvette; a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette; and a 2009 “1.5 Millionth” Corvette, all owned by the museum itself. No cars on loan from individuals were damaged in the incident.

The Skydome, completed in 1994, was to celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2014. The sinkhole reported this morning is the first such event on the museum property, which is located in a region of the state full of underground caves and notorious for its sinkholes.
