Torrance Fire Crews Will Need a Heavy Crane to Lift Trash Truck Out of Massive Sinkhole


(KNX 1070) -- Torrance fire crews will have to use a heavy crane to lift a trash truck out of a sink-hole, outside an elementary school.  

The truck fell into the hole...estimated at 20 feet long by 10 feet wide... after picking up garbage at Riviera Elementary.   

Torrance Fire assistant chief Carl Besanceney tells KNX the truck driver's okay.

Fire officials think the sinkhole may have been caused by an issue with a storm drain.
