CHICAGO (AP) - A rainstorm pummeling the Chicago area ripped open a sinkhole large enough to swallow three cars, injuring one driver bad enough that he had to be hospitalized.

Chicago Police Department spokesman Mike Sullivan says the gaping hole opened up in a street on the city's South Side, near Lake Michigan.

He says the injured man was driving when the road buckled and caved in. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The other two cars were parked.

A camera captured the third call falling into the hole on top of the other two. Check out the incredible video for yourself above.
