Kentucky drivers near the Capitol Avenue Bridge in Frankfort got a startling surprise when they saw that a parking lot on Main Street had collapsed — taking one car with it.

The parking lot collapsed behind Crumbaugh Properties near Capitol Avenue Bridge. The embankment gave way, taking half of the lot with it.

Several embankments across the city washed away during March flooding back in March. The parking lot is on private property.
