Parking Garage Collapse Swallows Tanker Truck in West Houston

A tanker truck fell into a hole caused by a parking garage collapse Friday in west Houston.

It appears that the truck fell into a weak spot on the roof of a parking garage which had became flooded this week.

It isn't clear if the hole was already there when the truck fell into it or if the weight of the truck caused the area to collapse.

There have been no reports of any injuries, and an investigation is underway.

Authorities said Friday the flooding that has claimed eight lives and displaced thousands of people in the Houston area has caused more than $14 million in damage and inundated more than 1,700 homes.
