Hook, line, sinker: mysterious hole opens up in Escanaba

ESCANABA – A mysterious sink hole opened up this weekend at Northern Motors in Escanaba.

The hole first appeared Saturday in the Northern Motors lot at 1513 Ludington St. One vehicle, which was for sale on the lot, was pulled partially into the hole.

“(It is) about the size of a 2013 Ford Explorer,” noted David Janovich of Northern Motors.

The Explorer, which had fallen into the sink hole, was not damaged. However, a tow truck was needed to remove the vehicle.

Escanaba Public Safety officers were dispatched to the scene around 3 p.m. Sunday, at which time the vehicle was being removed. Police and Public Works employees are not speculating as to what caused the hole to form.

Northern Motors plans to fix the hole today.
