Maryland sinkhole almost swallows car

PIKESVILLE, Md. -- A Maryland driver was just trying to run to the store but instead got stuck in a gaping hole.

City crews say a water main break is to blame but they are not sure how it happened.

The driver says he was just pulling out of his driveway and started to sink into the ground.

He was able to get out safely.

"The car was, it was level at one point; then it just started to crumble, I mean, fall into the road," said Quency Bynum. "It's a wash. Once all the electronic components get wet, it’s a wash."

The car has since been pulled out of the sinkhole.

Nearly 100 neighbors are without water while crews work to fix the pipes.
