WJTV reports officials planned to remove the cars Monday afternoon so they can more closely examine the hole to determine what caused it.

City officials told the television station a giant drainage structure collapsed Saturday at the IHOP restaurant in the city of Meridan.

The hole is about 15 feet deep, 35 feet wide, and 400 feet long.

No injuries were reported.

The restaurant opened last week.
