Massive sinkhole in Chicago swallows car; Driver rescued

If you think we have sinkhole problems in Los Angeles, you have to see the one that developed in Chicago on Saturday.

The sinkhole on the city's northwest side was 14 feet by 14 feet in size and 12 feet deep. It was so big that a car fell into it and flipped upside down Saturday morning.

The driver was rescued and taken to a hospital, and has since been released.

A spokesperson with the city water department in Chicago says that a water main broke, undermining the street and causing it to collapse.
