Sink-Hole Eats Truck

Vulcan County: Several counties around Southern Alberta have warned about the possibility of rural road wash-outs, and the reality hit hard for one driver Friday morning. Fortunately, he wasn't injured.

  About 8:05, the driver was on Township Road 160, a quarter mile west of Range Road 254 south of Vulcan when he hit a sink hole that spanned the entire width of the road.

  The road cracked open about three-feet over top of a culvert and wasn't visible to the driver.    When the truck hit the hole, it opened up further as the sides caved in. 

  RCMP warn you to be wary on rural roads right now. The ground is saturated and as snow continues to melt it will impact gravel roads. Even if the road appears to be drivable, it's advised that you not travel too close to road shoulders as they are very soft and may give way.
