Car and driver swallowed by Ohio sinkhole.

An Ohio woman and her car were swallowed by a 3 m sinkhole that opened up before her on North Detroit Avenue in Toledo in the northwest of the state on Wednesday 3 July 2013. Pamela Knox, 60, saw the hole start to open up beneath the car in front of her, which was able to accelerate away, but was unable to prevent herself from from falling in. She was rescued unhurt by the Toledo Fire and Rescue Department, and taken to a local hospital as a precaution. The sinkhole was apparently caused by a burst water main that washed sediments from beneath the road.

  1. Your blog is very informative. Eating mindfully has been very hard for people these days. It's all because of their busy schedules, work or lack of focus on themselves. As a student I must admit that I have not been eating mindfully but because of this I will start now. It could help me enjoy my food and time alone. Eating mindfully may help me be aware of healthy food and appreciating food.กรอบป้ายทะเบียนรถยนต์
