A woman swallowed by a sinkhole in Sheridan, Colorado is expected to be okay. Officials say she was driving along Oxford Avenue Tuesday when the ground opened up and her car fell in. The driver was able to get out in time and was not hurt. The sinkhole appeared as severe weather rolled through the southern edges of the Denver metro area. The storm dumped up to two inches of rain in 30 minutes.
The SUV was removed Wednesday after being sucked under the street when the pavement buckled the previous night. Crews could be on the scene, making repairs to Oxford Avenue for the next few days. Three years ago, a police officer's patrol vehicle went into a massive sinkhole near the same location.
