The driver of a truck laden with gravel got the shock of his life this week when his vehicle suddenly began to disappear into the ground as he drove along a city street.
The sinkhole appeared on Calle Atmósfera, a residential street in Colonia Jardines del Bosque. Firefighters extracted the driver who fortunately was not injured.
The hole measured eight by five meters, had a depth of four meters, and was caused, firefighters say, by a leaking water delivery pipe. The street was closed to traffic.
