SEBRING — A large sink hole opened on Hammock Road Tuesday evening, causing havoc with commuters of the heavily traveled thoroughfare.

The hole opened directly in front of Hammock Estates mobile home park, between Roger and John L Streets, as a result of metal pipe failure and increased storm water. Road detours take traffic from Hammock Road to Lakewood Road to East Recreation Drive to Jacklin Avenue and finally, back out to Hammock Road.
