Wow, I love two things, Russian dash cams, and sinkholes, this is the best of both worlds… I don’t know how this escaped out attention for so long!
This is the terrifying moment a huge sinkhole suddenly opened in the middle of a busy main road – almost swallowing a cement truck.
Adam Zubarev, 47, narrowly escaped injury after the back end of his truck was engulfed by the hole in the road in the city of Voronezh in western Russia.
The dash cam footage was recorded by Victor Bayshevfell, who was in one of the vehicles following the cement lorry when it fell into the tarmac.
Police spokesman Jaroslav Yefremov said at the time: “The truck which was a ‘Kamaz’ cement mixer vanished into a hole in the ground at the point with the road runs alongside the river outside the Marksimir shopping centre.
“The road has only just been repaired so it’s a mystery as to how this happened.”
Authorities had to leave the truck in the hole for two days while they tested the road structure. The footage was originally uploaded to YouTube in 2014, but has recently resurfaced after being shared on social media and viral video sites.
