Cars Falling Into Massive Sinkholes all around the world

13+ cases of Cars Falling Into Massive Sinkholes, cars driving into big instant road holes, and instant traffic collapsing sinkholes, falling into the ground! Collapsing road holes all around the world.

I think we all heard about cases when cars fell into road holes. Usually called a „portal to hell”( I would say, a portal to bad luck ), a road hole can be very dangerous when it occurs, and you have to be very lucky and a quick-thinking person to get out of your car… (I wonder how many can brag about that…)

Even though, in many cases, people were not actually in the car… so lucky, you guys!  You can actually drive into all kind of instant road holes (like you’re driving peacefully in your expensive car, with a lot of zen and stuff like that, while listening to your favorite song, and all of a sudden…boom! the road collapses and you’re down in a hole!), potholes, sinkholes, big, small, large, deep, large and deep..(if you have a really bad day…)


Imagine how it will be, to wake up in the morning in a bad mood, you have no coffee left, the house is a mess, but  still…you gotta go to work… ! You get in your car, turn the radio on and the main subject is the heavy traffic… two more streets down, you see yourself in front of a huge road hole, and you have no time to react…so you are plunging into it  ! Wow, that is what I call „Damn, this is a bad day” ! ( But it’s never too late to quit your job and stay at home! right…?)

I found some cases of this kind of bad days, and I am sure that you will be quite amazed and a bit terrified too. Here you will find a list with cars falling in giant holes from all around the world.. so check it out and …don’t forget, drive carefully!

  1. Great Britain Highway Hole

The driver of this car is a lady, who had a really bad, bad day. As she made her way to her office on highway A320,6 October 2011,  she had the bad luck to meet a giant sinkhole. Luckily, she didn’t have the fastest car, so she was able to clamber out of the pothole,  but as you can see in the picture, the opened ground swallowed her car and covered it with thousand gallons of water. After the police came and the car was pulled out, the road was closed for a few hours and then for a few days, in order to get that substantial hole fixed. Next time, I think she will take the bus! (wait… don’t feel safe yet… read on)

2. Giant hole on a Brazilian road

On 25 March 2015, somewhere in Brazil, this bus was filled with the unluckiest men in the world! As you see in the first photo, the river eroded the road and after a few meters, this is what happened….

As you can see, the bus fell into a massive crater … but as this wasn’t already bad enough, after being swallowed, it was washed away by intense floodwater…!

Luckily, everybody got out of the bus in time and none of the passengers were injured.

3.Trujillo, central Peru, Crossroads Chasm

5. Russia, Barnaul, Swallowing Hole

On 23 May 2016, the owner of this car checked in at a hotel in Barnaul. In the morning, she saw her car submerge into a giant pothole in the street (good thing this car is not fueled with air)… After she called the emergency services, she waited for hours for her car to be pulled out. It took 15 people to lift the car out of the one-meter-deep hole.

At least they got it out! I guess she hates hotel’s parking lawns now.

8.Chicago Hole swallows three cars
