Woman Hits Five-Foot Deep Sinkhole in Dayton
DAYTON -- Dayton city crews are hard at work trying to fix a large sinkhole at Greenlawn and South Smithville.
It's the second big sinkhole in the City of Dayton in just two days.
"There's a sinkhole that's opened up in the road," said a caller to 911 dispatcher.
A concerned man calls 911 about the hole.
"I had to stop drivers from driving into it," said the caller.
But one woman did.
"Right when I turned I felt a little shift and then I give it just a little bit of gas and then I felt like my tire went into a pothole," said Ada Kenley, "looked back, and that's when I noticed I didn't hit a little pothole, I hit a sinkhole"
A sinkhole that's five-feet deep, two-feet wide and three-feet long.
"It's not a real common thing that happens, it does happen from time to time," said David Shade, Operations Administrator the City of Dayton Water and Utility Department.
Shade checked out the sinkhole on Greenlawn Tuesday afternoon.
"They just kind of show up, usually the asphalt just keeps them covered, when, whenever that goes they kind of show up," said Shade.
The sinkhole on Greenlawn showed up because of a collapsed water main, but the city is still trying to figure out what caused this smaller sinkhole on Jersey Street.
"It's just random, it's not tied to any certain thing," said Shade.
But for the woman who hit it, random or not, she's just happy there wasn't more damage.
"When you stand and think about it for a while, you're like I'm glad it wasn't bigger, and I'm glad my car didn't go in or me," said Kenley.
City crews have the area around the sinkhole surrounded by cones making sure that it's safe for drivers. They are expected to start repairs sometime this week.
Once crews start repairing the sinkhole, they will close Greenlawn and are expected to take Smithville down to one lane.
