Seems everybody's got to have a sinkhole nowadays, the sudden collapse of huge chunks of ground swallowing cars and homes in Baltimore, Buckinghamshire, Chicago, Ohio, and seemingly every week, Florida. Oh yeah, and there was that little disturbance recently in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

This one comes from Russia, and although it didn't swallow anything we get to see it open up in the middle of the street in real time. If you watched the footage from the National Corvette Museum incident, you know they don't open up quickly (or if you're this guy, they might not open at all), so skip ahead to 1:00 in the video below if you're not interested in the build up.

      This is obviously result of soil being over saturated with vodka. Also, where are the 15 additional angles from the dash cams of those cars? This CANNOT be the only shot.

      Hmmm let's see, I see a hole forming in the road.... I'm just going to get as close to it as possible!

      Would have been neat if Godzilla would have stuck his head out of that hole.

      1:45 in. Knucklehead in white sedan going right to left just has to pass the car that slowed down and nearly drives into the hole. Sheesh.

      Can't believe how some of the vehicles in the other direction were so trusting, after the crater formed, to drive over the pavement near the edge. I bet you a few people will think, holy tabasco, I drove over that section! after they see it in the news.

      That driver in the black SUV on the right is such an ass! The road is falling out from under everyone and he won't let the guy next to him over... the driver on the left was very lucky the hole didn't expand big enough to swallow him

        Hang on I'm in the camp where the black SUV on the right was not able to see what was happening. The black SUV was never in the left lane and from the right lane it would be hard to see the depression in the road because of the traffic on the left blocking the view. What makes this driver of the SUV an ******* is when he sees the driver on the left trying to edge in they never move to the right. ALSO, YOU can't tell me horns were not used by the drivers on the left. So I see the SUV driver on the right an ******* for others reasons.

        You had to misuse an overused joke format that hasn't been funny in years? You must be a hit at parties. Anyway, sinkholes are terrifying and their increasing frequency is worrisome.

      What's wrong with this people? I mean, like, nobody actually drove into it? That's crazy. In US we have McDonald's for sandwiches and coffee, we have pets in our cars, we like to read and shave while commuting, compile the shopping list, argue vividly with person on the other end of the cell-phone, check weather or sports on our smartphones ... seemingly poor people in Russia have none of that and they simply look ahead and drive. What a bore! /sarcasm

        It must be an early morning, liquor stores do not open so early.
