Sinkholes are unpredictable and extremely dangerous. A family in Buckinghamshire, UK is well aware of that after a massive sinkhole opened up, only feet away from their house.
The homeowners, Liz and Phil Conran are still in shock following the incident. Their 19-year-old daughter’s Volkswagen Lupo was swallowed by the sinkhole measuring about 15 feet wide and twice as deep.
The young woman had been getting ready to leave for the day when she stepped outside and noticed the vehicle was gone. She then retreated back inside the house and looked out the window for a better view.
That’s when she spotted the huge opening in the driveway. The vehicle had overturned and was facing the opposite direction by the time it reached the bottom of the crater.
The sinkhole opened up without any prior indication of a problem. Following the occurrence, the family was forced to stay with neighbors, as they were advised to keep away from the home as a safety precaution. The insurance company is reportedly inspecting the stability of the residence.
For now, the Conran’s are just thankful that their daughter is safe.
