A giant sinkhole opened up on bulevar Federico Benítez on Monday, December 27, swallowing up two freight trucks loaded with wheat. The collapsed section of roadway measured about 15 feet wide, 24 feet long, and 5 feet deep.
Although recent rains may be responsible, some are pointing the finger at CESPT (Comisión Estatal de Servicios Públicos de Tijuana), because their crews had been digging in the area and installing pipes.
Jorge Enrique García, subdirector of CESPT, said that the cause of the collapse still had not been determined but that if responsible, the department would foot the bill for repairs. He added that similar sinkholes had occurred elsewhere around the city during the storm.
