    I'm going with the act of God thing.

    Actually the same thing happened Super Bowl Sunday 2 years ago on the same street two blocks up while responding to...a water leak. Pics from previous collapse. First was soon after going in, second a few hours later as street collapsed more.

    Sounds like the truckies should go easy on the pasta.....

    Can't really see the number in the video to well, but looks like it is the same one from 2 yrs ago.

    Note to yourself... Don't take that rig on that street on Super Bowl week, 2013.

    I remember last year when ladder 8 ran over the sink hole, United crane was called in with a 600 ton mobile crane to lift it out. Probably after paying the bill for that they opted for 2 tow trucks this time haha. Len sent you a PM
