A backhoe was swallowed by a 10-foot-wide sinkhole in Bedford, Massachusetts while heading toward the scene of a water main break on January 7, 2015.
No injuries have been reported after the water main break washed away much of the ground beneath the pavement.
Here some pictures of the road collapse:
The road closure was confirmed by the Bedford Police Department via Twitter:
