That sinking feeling

A car rests in a sinkhole Friday after a water main broke on an Evansville, Ind., street. Timothy Stone tells the Evansville Courier & Press that he, his girlfriend and two children had stopped at a stop sign when their car "felt weird" and started to sink. The four of them managed to climb to safety from the car's passenger side. Two wreckers eventually pulled the car from the sinkhole, which a police report described as 12 feet in diameter and 16 feet deep. Water and Sewer Utility Director Allen Mounts says a water main and a sewer line had failed in the area.
