A delivery truck got stuck in a Marine Park sinkhole for nearly two hours on Oct. 20.

The Poland Springs truck was trapped on East 34th Street, between Avenues S and T, at 12:48 pm when its left front wheel fell into a sinkhole that opened in the street.

Firefighters from Engine 309 deliberated how to remove the truck from the sizable sinkhole — four feet wide and nearly 6 feet deep — for more than an hour and a half before finally freeing the vehicle at 2:27 pm, said a fire department spokesman.
