Sinkhole Swallows Up Fire Truck In Los Angeles (VIDEO)

A 42,000-pound fire truck looks like it has simply melted halfway into the middle of the road, but in reality it was swallowed up a huge sinkhole. The firefighters were responding to an "unknown water problem in the street" when the road buckled and swallowed up half the truck.

Normally the truck would be towed out of the sinkhole, but authorities are unsure if the road can support the added weight of the tow trucks. No firefighters were injured.
