Virginia crews lifted a crushed automotive out of a sinkhole final week after the highway opened up and swallowed the parked automobile.
The sinkhole opened up Thursday night time in Dale Metropolis and consumed the unoccupied crimson automotive, FOX5 DC reported. Neighbors may be heard on a video screaming in disbelief because the automotive’s entrance fender is ripped off when it falls into the opening.

“It’s crazy, we bought our house in 1984 and nothing like this has ever happened on this road,” neighbor Marleen Brumbaugh informed FOX5.
Images posted by the Prince William Police Division on Friday confirmed crews descending into the opening to hook the automotive as much as a crane. A tow truck raised the crushed automobile again onto the highway.
Virginia Division of Transportation (VDOT) officers informed WUSA-TV that file rainfall doubtless prompted the highway, which travels over a creek, to break down.

“The water took the pipe and it just pushed the pipe, blew them out down the creek,” VDOT supervisor Mike Collier informed the station.
Repairs to the highway had been reportedly anticipated to take per week.
