Chicago Sinkhole Swallows Three Cars

You know you're in for a rough day when you go out to your car in the morning only to find it swallowed up by a sinkhole in the middle of the street. That's exactly what happened today in Chicago.

According to the Chicago Tribune, this section of a Southeast Side street collapsed and took three cars with it earlier this morning. Details are scarce on how it actually happened, but one person was removed from a vehicle and taken to an area hospital in serious-to-critical condition, the newspaper reported.


You know what I've had enough of this week? Mayhem. I am hereby ordering a moratorium on further mayhem for the rest of the week. Maybe even the rest of the month. Make it so, Planet Earth.

Update: As pointed out by some of our commenters, here's video of that Dodge Avenger going to the sinkhole. It happens about 15 seconds in to WGN's report. Oh, snap!
