Large Sinkhole Opens Up, Swallows Cars in Los Angeles



Los Angeles sinkhole

A massive sinkhole opened up in Los Angeles, cutting across a road and swallowing at least two cars, the Los Angeles Fire Department said in a release.

The department said four people were trapped in the sinkhole, two of whom freed themselves prior to LAFD’s arrival and were uninjured.

The other two people had minor injuries and needed immediate rescue as road conditions continued to deteriorate, according to the release.

The sinkhole is “fully cutting across the southbound lane of Iverson Road,” and the road is now fully closed, it added.

Aerial view from the scene (above) showed at least two cars swallowed in the large hole.

More than 20 million people across California are under flood alerts Tuesday as rain and storms continue to batter the state, and threaten to bring more flooding and mudslides.

Approximately 160,000 customers across the state are without power, authorities said.
