Unfortunate Driver Escapes With Life After Driving into Sinkhole

By Gary Cutlack on at

A driver in Jinjiang, China, had quite an eventful minute and a half recently, after accidentally turning his car into a sinkhole that opened up at a junction -- and getting out just seconds before it flipped over and fell in.

There's a video of it all happening, which the two occupants will be showing to their grandchildren on an endless, amazed loop, for the rest of their days:

The CCTV clip even shows a crazy lorry driver going over the hole, cleverly managing to straddle the hole with the wheels of his truck. The driver's car popped out undamaged in Russia. [YouTube via Independent]
