Large Sinkhole Appears in West 7th District of Fort Worth

FORT WORTH (WBAP/KLIF News) — A sinkhole big enough to swallow a car has part of a popular Fort Worth road closed.

The hole opened up this morning at the intersection of West 7th St. and Carroll, after a woman who was driving said she felt the ground move beneath her.

“We have about a 10×10 collapse in the street that we’re investigating,” said Juan Cadena with the City of Fort Worth. “We have crews out here investigating to find out what’s going on.”

The hole opened up sometime around 8:30 this morning. The driver’s car went into the sinkhole, but it was eventually towed out with nobody injured.

Cadena said emergency crews are working to repair it, but no word on exactly when the road will open up. He did not know the exact cause of the opening.
