Man Dies in Illinois Sinkhole

A man is found dead inside his work truck after driving into a sinkhole in Illinois.

Police say emergency crews found the utility company truck Sunday morning.

52-year-old Robert Moss was responding to power outages caused by strong storms in the area. Rainwater apparently weakened an underground culvert, causing the roadway to collapse. It left a 20-foot hole that ran the width of the road.

The utility company said that Moss likely never saw it through the darkness and driving rain.
