Sinkhole Swallows Car in NW MO


ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — It’s bad enough when your car won’t start. It’s even worse when you can’t even get to the door.

A sinkhole opened under this car in St. Joseph, Missouri north of Kansas City.

The sinkhole was caused by a nearby water main break.

Crews shut down a nearby intersection while they worked to fix the break.

Nobody was hurt when the car fell into the sinkhole.

The rear wheels stayed on the road, but the rest went into the water.

Crews brought in a crane to lift the car back onto the street.

Then, they loaded the car onto a wrecker and hauled it away.
