Sinkhole swallows car in Pittsburgh area

Updated: Wednesday, August 13 2014, 08:34 AM EDT

   PITTSBURGH (AP) -- A sudden sinkhole has swallowed a car that was in the parking lot of a Pittsburgh-area tanning salon. The owner of the business helped rescue the driver, but the entire car vanished underwater within minutes.

   The unidentified driver of the car told TV station KDKA that "I'm in shock, this is not happening, my car is gone."

   The incident happened just after 4 p.m. Tuesday. Emergency crews have shut down southbound portions of McKnight road, a busy area full of malls and other businesses.

   The Hollywood Tans business has been evacuated, but no injuries have been reported. There were heavy rains in the area before the sinkhole appeared, but it's not yet known if they contributed to the problem.
