Bizarre! Bus, car plunge into huge hole in Chennai as road caves in

Chennai: A public transport bus and a car were sucked into a massive hole in Chennai as a section of the road caved-in on Sunday, which sent people scurrying to safety.

The incident took place around 2 pm in Chennai's Anna Salai area when the street was bustling with people.

The bus was plying on the Anna Square-Vadapalani route.

Both the vehicles were later on pulled out. But thankfully, no one was injured.

It is suspected that the hole may have been formed due to an excavation work nearby for a metro project.

The driver first thought it was a tyre puncture but when the movement grew stronger he peeped out and saw the road caving in, TOI reported.

He asked the passengers to get down immediately. And as all the passengers deboarded, the bus started to sink.

A passing car also got trapped.

The police then cordoned off the area and diverted the traffic.

Citing Tamil Nadu Finance Minister D Jayakumar, the report said that the accident might have happened due to loose soil.
