Toledo Sinkhole Swallows Car

Imagine driving and getting trapped inside a sinkhole.

That terrifying scenario was all too real for one woman in Toledo.

Sixty-year-old Pamela Knox and her car were swallowed by a sinkhole suddenly opening up in the middle of a busy street.

Police and fire crews had to use a crane and a ladder to rescue her. It took four hours.

“Slowly she was able to work her way out, to safety,” CNN’s Zain Asher reports. “Knox was surprisingly not hurt in the accident, but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.”
