Heavy rainfall opened a sinkhole in San Luis Obispo on Thursday, trapping a US Postal truck.

The city's police department says a patrol was called out to a report of a mailman who drove into a sinkhole. The road gave out at the end of Olive St.

Luckily, police say the driver was not hurt. A city crew was called out to repair the sinkhole which was about 6 feet wide and 5 feet deep.
