Sinkhole Tops 100 Feet Wide

Today, more pavement fell into the giant sinkhole in Smith County, which now tops 100 feet wide. It's now more than twice its original size two Sundays ago.  It's located west of Tyler on FM 724, a couple of miles north of Highway 64.

TX-DOT is still not releasing an official cause. Officials say all the cracks indicate much more of the road could collapse.

That's why they're urging people not to get too close. In fact, highway patrol officers have given out a number of tickets for trespassing.
