Two cars swallowed by sinkhole in northwest Idaho.

Two cars travelling in opposite directions were swallowed by a sinkhole that opened up to the north of Hayden Lake in Kootenai County, Idaho (roughly 40 km northeast of Spokane, Washington), at about 3.00 am local time on Thursday 6 March 2013. Both drivers, Clifton McMahon (24) and Melissa Ehrmantraut (31) were treated at the Kootenai Health and Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries, as was a passenger in one of the vehicles, Anthony Marino (47).

Sinkholes are generally caused by water eroding soft limestone or unconsolidated deposits from beneath, causing a hole that works its way upwards and eventually opening spectacularly at the surface. Where there are unconsolidated deposits at the surface they can infill from the sides, apparently swallowing objects at the surface, including people, without trace.


The Hayden Lake sinkhole is thought to have been caused by a rainwater culvert running beneath the road, which failed due to heavy runoff, leading to water washing away a significant volume of soil beneath the road, and the formation of a 3.0 by 2.5 m sinkhole.   See also Pickup truck swallowed by sinkhole on Big Island, Hawaii, One person rescued after Chicago sinkhole swallows pickup truck,  Homes destroyed by Florida sinkholeUS Marine killed by Missouri Sinkhole and Car swallowed by sinkhole in Indianapolis.   Follow Sciency Thoughts on Facebook.

  1. This area has become very crowded and competitive Considering the fact that the loan borrowers now offer many incentives for them to sign. Many small perks down the stretch save you money and will make your life much easier. When signing for a loan that eventually translates into a very simple and painless process.
