BOWLING GREEN, KY. — A sinkhole collapsed part of the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky on Wednesday, damaging eight there but not shutting down the facility.

Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli said six of the cars were owned by the museum and two — a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil — were on loan from General Motors.

Bowling Green city spokeswoman Kim Lancaster said the hole opened up at about 5:40 a.m. CST Wednesday, setting off an alarm and a call to the fire department. Frassinelli said no one was in the museum at the time.

The hole is in part of the domed section of the museum, and that area will remain closed. That’s an original part of the facility for which was completed in 1994.
