Sinkhole swallows gas truck in Zapopan

A sinkhole in Zapopan, north of Guadalajara, swallowed a 12,000-liter gas tanker on the corner of Bandera Nacional and Terrirotio Nacional in the Conjunto Patría neighborhood.

The trunk sank into a 12 by 6-meter hole caused by an underground water leak.

The Civil Protection Commander of Zapopan, Arturo Javier Chavez Benitez, informed that as a preventive measure they evacuated around 50 people who were in the area.

Elements of the corporation are waiting for SIAPA personnel to attend to the leakage of water, and employees of the gas company to start the transfer of gas and then remove the vehicle.
