Be alert: You Never Know When the Ground will Open Up

A teen in southwestern Minnesota found himself in a pickle when he drove straight into a gaping chasm in the road before him reported by the local sheriff’s office, the accident left the car sticking into the air, nearly vertical. This 16-year-old driver was very lucky to have escaped without any injuries thanks in part to his seat [belt] and air bags. The teenager has only been driving for only a few weeks and was on his way to work at a farm when he had the sudden encounter with the ground. He escaped by crawling out the back window of his car. According to the U.S. Geological Survey this was not a sinkhole. The chasm in the earth was created by flooding after the road washed out around an underground culvert……Ed
