Texas-sized pothole is big enough to swallow a Lexus, and nearly did
FORT WORTH A giant sinkhole opened up on West Seventh Street Thursday, nearly swallowing a Lexus during a rainy morning rush hour. The monstrous collage of collapsed road pavement occurred at the intersection of West Seventh Street and Carroll Street, right next to the Velvet Taco and Montgomery Plaza. The sinkhole appeared to be about 10 feet in diameter, and several feet deep. Police were called to the area at 8:44 a.m., police spokesman Buddy Calzada said. No injuries were reported, but a Lexus had to be extracted from the giant hole and towed away, city workers said.
