MERIDIAN  - A Meridian city official says a Saturday night cave-in of a restaurant parking lot that swallowed 12 cars was not the result of a sinkhole.
    
Meridian Public Safety Director Buck Roberts tells The Meridian Star the collapse was not a sinkhole but didn't provide any further details.
    
Emergency crews were called to the IHOP restaurant on North Frontage Road at about 7:15 p.m. and discovered a section of the parking lot, about 35 feet wide and 400 feet long, had collapsed. Cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles dropped into the void that appeared to be about 15 feet deep.
    
No injuries were reported.
