NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Several pricey cars were swallowed up by a massive sinkhole in Kentucky on Wednesday morning.

A sinkhole about 40-feet wide opened up below the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green damaging eight Corvettes.

The museum was closed for the day, according to its website CorvetteMuseum.org

The floor in the Skydome area of the museum collapsed before 5:44 a.m. No one was injured.

The hole was approximately 25-30 feet deep.

The vehicles damaged include a 1962 Black Corvette owned by the museum and a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from General Motors.

A structural engineer is assessing the damage and stability of the area.

The museum was preparing for its 20th anniversary celebration in August.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.

    New York City is exploring ways to curb the speed of taxis. The Taxi and Limousine Commission this week issued a request for information on "anti speeding vehicle technologies."  The measures include devices that can intervene when drivers exceed posted speeds and "advisory systems" that can sound alarms when reckless driving is detected.
