Limestone County, Alabama. August 4th, 2011.

Limestone County Sheriff Department responded to the scene of a sinkhole at Ingram Road off Highway 31.

 

Crews said a SUV was trapped after the road was engulfed by the sink hole. A towing company was able to pull the car out of the sinkhole just before 11:00 a.m. Thursday morning.

Matthew Keil says he was driving home from work when he saw what looked to be a pothole in the road.  When he tried to drive over it, the road buckled underneath him.  He said he was scared to get out of the car, but is glad that his vehicle was OK.

It is undetermined if the heavy rains overnight Wednesday was a factor in the accident.
