Giant pothole accident

Driver and passenger both escaped seconds before their van sunk into a 7ft hole that opened up in the road

The cause of the giant pothole was burst water mains that left 2,000 homes without supplies. The 4×4 was as such an angle that the rear wheels were off the ground, with the bonnet of the vehicle submerged in water.
