Chai! Dozens of Cars Swallowed Up in Broad Daylight in Massive Road Collapse (Photos+Video)

Motorists were given the shock of their lives recently when the road they were driving on suddenly collapsed sinking their cars.

 
This was the dramatic scene after dozens of cars were swallowed up in a massive 600ft road collapse along a river in Italy.
 
Emergency crews were called to the banks of the Arno river in the Italian city of Florence amid reports a huge section had given way by the water's edge.
 
 
The collapse, which was 600ft long and 21ft wide, is thought to have been caused by a ruptured water pipe.
 
Pictures show how the river wall buckled after the collapse and huge cracks opened up in the surface of the road.
 
 
The incident happened earlier today on Lungarno Torrigiani in central Florence between Ponte Vecchio and Ponte alle Grazie.
 
The city's fire department said water leaking from an underground pipe washed away soil and caused erosion beneath the surface.
 
Fire fighters descended on the scene and are using pumps in a bid to drain the water. Nobody was hurt in the collapse.
 
 
According to the Huffington Post, the Mayor of Florence Dario Nardella said: 'No injuries, but damage - heavy damage. It is a very serious chasm.'
 
Residents from two nearby houses have been evacuated as a precaution while the operation gets underway this morning.
