Bicyclist injured after falling into 12-foot possible sinkhole in St. Cloud
ST. CLOUD, Fla. - Police are investigating after they say a bicyclist fell into a 12-foot possible sinkhole that opened up in St. Cloud.
The hole shut down Old Canoe Creek Road from Neptune Road to 13th Street (US 192) Wednesday morning, St. Cloud police said.
The bicyclist suffered a laceration to the face and minor injuries. That person is being treated at a local hospital.
"A sink hole is being repaired," police tweeted. "Please use alternate routes, and drive carefully."
St. Cloud police told FOX 35's Amanda McKenzie that engineers and investigators are on the scene to determine exactly what this hole is and what caused it. They say this could be a washout or a possible sinkhole, but that will be up to the investigators to determine.
