TOLDEO (OHIO): A northwest Ohio sinkhole has swallowed a car travelling down a street and briefly trapped the driver, who climbed out after authorities gave her a ladder.
Toledo police Sgt. Joe Heffernan says a water main break beneath the road may have caused the sinkhole on Wednesday.
The hole is estimated to be at least 10 feet deep.
Police say driver Pamela Knox didn’t appear hurt but was shaken and was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
Heffernan says Knox saw the vehicle in front of her start to slip into the hole but drove beyond it. He says Knox couldn’t avoid it. Officials used a crane to pull the car from the hole. Repairs to the road are expected to take days.
