An off-duty hydro excavation truck transporting almost 2,000 gallons of water fell into a large sinkhole in Hall County, Georgia yesterday.

On Tuesday morning, the Badger Daylighting truck fell through the parking lot of a mechanic’s garage, according to Hall County Fire Services Captain Zachary Brackett.

Hall County authorities are playing it safe and waiting until the hole is completely graded and checked before removing the sunken truck.

The driver was able to remove himself from the truck and no one was injured during the accident. The  accident did, however, cause a small 5-gallon fuel spill, which has already been cleaned up by a private contractor.

In order to make the removal of the truck easier, the water, weighing in at roughly 12,800 pounds, was transferred to another truck.

The cause of the sinkhole is unknown at this time.
