HUNAN PROVINCE, China (WTVR) –  A giant sinkhole swallows up a car in China.

Police say a section of a highway in Hunan Province caved in early Thursday morning, taking a car and its driver with it.

Emergency workers helped the driver climb to safety. He’s expected to be ok.

Police believe a river near the road may have caused the ground underneath the road to erode.
