A portion of Mead Street in Zanesville has sunk to a new level. This morning city crews were called out to inspect a 15-foot wide sinkhole in the middle of the street. Tom Moore, of the City’s sewer maintenance department said a collapsed storm sewer might have caused the hole. Moore said it would take about two hours to excavate the hole to find the problem. When crews arrived this morning, there was a car trapped in the hole. Two wreckers had to lift the vehicle out—there was some damage to the car, but there were no injuries. Moore said Mead Street will be closed for at least a couple of days until crews can get the problem fixed and the street repaved.
