Some Ukrainians in a VW Golf got one hell of a surprise when they drove through a puddle only to find it was deep enough to swallow their car whole. Now that's a water hazard.

After finding themselves totally submerged in the muddy water, the occupants had to make their way to the rear hatch and kick the glass out in order to escape. Nobody was seriously injured in the incident but the Golf is much worse for the wear. Certainly makes the potholes of Detroit look like baby stuff. [English Russia via Carscoop]
