Hefty hole opens in WB

The earth nearly swallowed Mr. Errol Wright and his 65-ton Terex crane early Thursday morning.

Mr. Wright was en-route to a job site in West Bay when he felt his crane drop in a hole outside the West Bay Cemetery.

‘I drive on the soft shoulders because I don’t want to hold up traffic. I felt my crane drop into a hole. I kept driving but the crane would not go any further. That’s when I realised this was no simple pot hole,’ Mr. Wright said.

The hole is 8.6 feet long, 4.6 feet wide and about 5 feet deep.

The Public Works Department was called and plans are to fill the hole.
