A driver in Epperstone, Nottinghamshire, thought some water on the road was just an overflowing drain, and tried to drive through it. But it turned out to be running into a sinkhole: ‘All of a sudden the car was sucked across the road and I ended up in the hole in the road. The water came flooding in over my knees and eventually it was above the dashboard. It was fairly hard to escape… the car kept locking and unlocking itself so I had to get out of the passenger side, which was difficult.’
At least it says something for how well Honda lights keep going in wet conditions.
