Russian Sinkhole Nearly Swallows Car (Video)

| by Emily Smith

Drivers narrowly escaped the opening of a sinkhole on a busy road recently.

Several drivers noticed the cracking asphalt on a street in Tyumen, Siberia. As the road began to split and collapse, each car attempted to move further from the opening, though traffic had essentially come to a halt.

One black car attempted to merge into the right line, though no other car would budge. It narrowly escaped collapsing into the cave-in before merging.

The road was closed shortly after the collapse and no one was injured.

The collapse is being blamed on the region’s recent rainfall.
