They came for the pancakes, but patrons of an IHOP in Meridian, Miss. got a lot more than they expected when a huge sinkhole opened up in the parking lot and swallowed at least 15 vehicles.
“We received a call earlier this evening of a sinkhole opening up at the new IHOP restaurant,” said Meridian Fire Department chief battalion Wayne Cook. “Upon arrival, we found multiple vehicles in the ditch.”
The sink hole was 50 feet wide and nearly 600 feet long, according to authorities.
