WEST POINT -- A sinkhole measuring about five feet wide and eight feet deep will close the right-hand turning lane on 2000 West just before 300 North until crews can repair it, officers said.

Davis County Sheriff's Sgt. Susan Poulsen said a white truck got stuck in the sink hole sometime after 1 p.m. on Wednesday. The truck did not receive any damage.

The road is also known as State Road 108. Utah Department Transportation crews will assess the sinkhole and repair it, Poulsen said. It could take some time before the lane is open again for traffic.
