A possible sinkhole has taken half of this driveway along Calais Drive in Holiday.


Holiday, Florida --  Some much needed help has come for a senior whose driveway was swallowed by a 20-foot-wide hole. 

STORY: Possible sinkhole eats driveway
PICS: Possible sinkhole opens up in front of home

The hole opened up over the weekend just east of where U.S. 19 and Alternate 19 come together. 

The homeowner, Carol Bowers, doesn't have insurance, and since the hole is on one piece of property, it's the owner's problem.

This would mean Bowers would have to pay to survey the hole, find out what caused it, and then stabilize and fill it, but luckily, "The Sinkhole Guy" has stepped in to help. 

Taylor Yarkosky and Advanced Pier Technology aren't just lending expertise, but Bowers' bill for a new driveway will be taken care of. She'll also be given a rental car to drive as repairs are underway, since her car is effectively stuck in her garage.
