Huffington Post - Here's a tip for drivers: steer clear of puddles, because you never know what's they're hiding.
Two cars got stuck in a sinkhole on Detroit's east side Friday evening, according to WJBK-TV. What looked like a bit of flooding at the intersection of McClellan and Felch streets was actually hiding a large hole that caused the driver of a Ford Focus to hit his head on the steering wheel and get stuck, his back wheels lifting off the ground.
But seconds after a truck towed his car away, a second unaware driver made the same mistake. WJBK caught the incident on camera:
Davonte Reed, the driver of the first car, was told that the problem was not the city's fault and the police couldn't help, according to WJBK.
"It's my fault for driving through water. It's my fault for driving on the city street," Reed jokes in the video, above. City workers from the Water and Sewerage Department came to look at the sinkhole Friday, which WJBK reports was caused after a water main -- which had broken and been repaired several months ago -- gave way.
Enough already, okay? Enough with the fucking sick holes I'm done with them, finished. True story, didn't even know that sinkholes existed in real life until like a year ago when I heard about some poor kid who died cus the ground just stopped working under him. And now there's a new story almost every day about one eating something or somebody else. Like what the fuck do we do with these things? They don't seem solvable. They're just silent assassins, ready to let out from under you or your car when you least expect it. Every time I see a story of a sinkhole I just imagine some jungle adventure scene where the lead character sets a hole trap filled with spikes for his attackers to fall in to and covers it up with some leaves to disguise it. Except we're not in the fucking jungle, and instead of leaves covering it it's god damn concrete, just looking like any other concrete, except this particular section of concrete is about to open up and drag you down to hell through it's evil mouth.
So let's figure it out here with these sink holes, people. Seriously. There's gotta be some way out there to keep this jungle book like feature of the Earth in the jungle and not eating our cars in the middle of the street.
P.S. Would've been easy to make this a blog to make fun of Detroit, but I won't stoop low like that. I just thank the heavens that Detroit exists, cus it is great to have a city that takes the attention away from Philly when discussing scummy urban landscape. So you're cool in my book Detroit.
