15-Foot Wide Sinkhole Opens in Central Florida

Authorities have shut down an exit ramp from Interstate 4 in central Florida after a 15-foot wide sinkhole opened up during rush hour.

Orange County Fire Rescue officials said the ramp from eastbound I-4 to eastbound Maitland Boulevard was shut down Monday afternoon causing a major traffic back-up.

It's unclear what cause the sinkhole to open, but the area has had sinkhole problems in the past. It's also located near a construction site.

The Orlando Sentinel reports traffic cameras appear to show a car that is stuck in the hole.
