TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A spokeswoman for a northwest Ohio city says the collapse of brick sewers beneath a road caused the sinkhole that swallowed a moving car.
The 60-year-old driver says she was running errands and headed to her home Wednesday in Toledo when the pavement gave way and her car fell into a hole estimated to be at least 10 feet deep. Pamela Knox tells The Blade newspaper (http://bit.ly/168YnzX ) she feared she would die as water from a broken pipe poured into the back seat of her car.
She was briefly trapped but climbed out using a ladder with help from a firefighter. She was shaken and checked at a hospital but wasn't seriously hurt.
Knox, an elementary school principal, says she'll likely avoid the scene of the sinkhole for a while.
