Officials are investigating if the trucks fell into a sinkhole or if the fracture in the ground was caused by something else.
Several large trucks ended up swallowed inside what officials believe may be a sinkhole in central Florida early Wednesday.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said the hole opened up around 1 a.m. on private property along Boggy Creek Road, located near Orlando International Airport.

Deputies arriving at the scene discovered "a large fracture in the ground between two lakes that had collapsed" that is estimated to be at least 30-feet wide.

The Orange County Fire Rescue said on Twitter that several trucks had been swallowed.
