Sinking feeling

A garbage truck was grabbed by a sinkhole in downtown Sunnyside this morning, just after 9:30 a.m. The driver, Jesus Ortega, says he was backing out of the driveway next to Navarro’s Community Center when the asphalt gave way underneath his truck. The damage was apparently caused by a broken sewer mainline that was scheduled to be repaired tomorrow. City officials were unaware of the extent of the damage.
