NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A train headed for Nashville stopped short of what could have been disaster on Tuesday morning.
On Monday night, crews spotted a sinkhole that formed under WeGo Star tracks at the waterworks location near Omohundro Drive.
The following day, passengers had to take the bus from the Donelson Station into Nashville.

It's a muddy mess after the rain, and the stretch of track between the Donelson and Riverfront stations remains closed #5LiveTraffic @NC5_Sky5HD pic.twitter.com/qLObsKSyuc
The cause of the sinkhole is not yet known, but crews are actively working on the issue.
WeGo has modified its services until further notice as only the Donelson and Lebanon stations are accessible. WeGo said the train times will remain the same, but the third morning and third evening trips will not run.
In the mornings, the route 64 Star Downtown Shuttle will take passengers downtown and the route 93 West End Shuttle will travel to Vanderbilt University, each from the Donelson Station.
In the afternoon, route 93 buses will travel to the Donelson station. Route 64 passengers will be picked up by a van and taken to Riverfront Station. There, a bus will take them to the Donelson Station.
