MAITLAND, Fla. (AP) - Authorities have shut down an exit ramp from Interstate 4 in central Florida after a 15-foot wide sinkhole opened up during rush hour.
Orange County Fire Rescue officials said the ramp from eastbound I-4 to eastbound Maitland Boulevard was shut down Monday afternoon causing a major traffic back-up.
It's unclear what cause the sinkhole to open, but the area has had sinkhole problems in the past. It's also located near a construction site.
The Orlando Sentinel (http://tinyurl.com/ok3l7r3 ) reports traffic cameras appear to show a car that is stuck in the hole.
