Bus in Burnaby lands in sinkhole, gets stuck (PHOTOS)
Torrential downpours (and possibly the fact that it’s Friday the 13th?) have left a bus in Burnaby – and likely the driver – with a sinking feeling.
A bus has apparently landed in a fairly large sinkhole at Production Way and Broadway this morning on its way to SFU.
Global News says the sinkhole had only been filled a few months prior to the incident and it measures about ten feet long and six feet deep.
