Sinkhole swallows car in Maryland

In an amazing and almost tragic turn of events, a family almost becomes trapped after a large sinkhole in the middle of the street swallows their car. In addition, due to a 12-inch water main break in Hyattsville, Maryland on Tuesday, a large sinkhole was produced which thus caused the enormous sinkhole. The sinkhole occurred at Edmonston Road and Decatur Street and sent water rushing throughout the residential area. Family members of the near tragedy lived on the street and noticed water rushing through their home when they decided to get into their car to flee. As a result, their car began to sink, and they narrowly got out in time before the sinkhole subsequently swallowed the entire car. Water is still inside of at least a few homes on the street, and many are still without power as five homes have been fully evacuated.
